Ring Nebula

Another planetary nebula, but a lot smaller looking than the Dumbbell. The 'Ring Nebula' (M57) is located in Lyra.
Through a telescope it is a little grey ring, but even the humblest camera will bring out some colour.

Not Just the 'Apple Core' (M27)

On 12th September, the sky was particularly clear with none of that haze which has been hanging around for so long. I spent a few hours looking at various targets, which included M27 or sometimes known as the Dumbbell Nebula. It is a large looking planetary nebula, which is a cloud of gas blown off by a central star. M27 tends to have the appearence of an 'apple core', which is the brighter dust streaming ...
