This bright close-up of the Dumbbell Nebula combines traditional RGB with highlights in H-alpha (Ha) provided by a narrowband Optolong L-Extreme filter. 30 minutes with a UV/IR cut filter and 28 minutes with the L-Extreme.
A quick imaging session to capture the beauty and detail of planetary nebula M27.
This bright nebula visible in binoculars is a planetary nebula surrounding a white dwarf star.
Join me for a night of viewing. I observed several nebulae (the Iris Nebula, the Dumbbell Nebula, and the Eagle Nebula) and the moon all night until 3am when the planets Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter appeared in that order.
