dumbell nebula

cobh ,co.cork Ireland

Celestron 8″sgt lxt-starbright on a advance gt mount
camera: Canon 40d conected to Canon EOS utillitys on my laptop, image: 60 sec. 800 iso post processing: Arcsoft- photostudio 6 (trail version)

this is the dumbell nebula ,taken from the backyard in cobh, ireland
the initial image was a bit dark but with a bit of tweeking with a program called “photo studio 6 by arcsoft” this lovely picture came out,as the soft ware i used is a trail version it saves the file in low resolution only , making the picture pixelated.
im only learning to post process my images and know there is room for improvement, but im happy with the result sofar.
