The Blue Snowball

Postby Aratus » Thu Sep 14, 2017 11:57 am

The 'Blue Snowball' is a planetary nebula. (NGC 7662) It is technically in Andromeda, but is well away from any bright stars. It is a fine sight in a telescope, being quite bright. Its 'blueness' is very noteable.
This image is a quick one. I hope to do a better, more detailed images later.
It always reminds me of an old small filament torch bulb.
I use an 11" reflector (Celestron CPC 1100) and a 3" refractor, (Sky-Watcher ST80) mounted on an equatorial wedge, housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI 120MM, ZWO ASI1600MC and Canon 1300D for imaging.
