Planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula. A dying star throwing off clouds of gas.

My favourite planetary nebula to image. Strong colours, bright, high altitude and large size of 7 minutes for this type of nebula.

Nice visual object in my 11 inch telescope.

LRGB image with 3 hours and 15 minutes of data. 17 x Lum, 7 x Red, 6 x Green, 9 x Blue 5 minute exposures.
