Ari Jokinen, Etelä-Suomen kosmol. seura

LRGB image depicted in dumbbel fog.

Later in the fall when it gets really dark you could still try to take this narrow-fry more spice. Then weaker areas of fog could be seen.

There was an exposure for three hours.

The first picture croppi from the second.

      Planetary nebula is the remnant of a death star. It could be ring-shaped, disc-like or spread out rather irregularly.

      With the exception of some nearest objects planetary nebulae have a small apparent diameter and they need a rather big instrument to be visible.
