M27 - 17.7.2021 at 02.00 Tampere Observation number 99670

Visibility III / V

Tapio Lahtinen, Tampereen Ursa

Last night I tested the equipment and at the same time tried to take a color picture.
I noticed that it’s already so dark that exposures of at least 30 seconds succeed in narrowband.

      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.
