The Dumbell Nebula in Vulpecula - posted 7/31/06

This beautiful planetary nebula always reminds me of Summer. This wide field view enhances the appearance of it floating in space. The Luminance for this image was taken with 3 minute sub exposures. I used HA for the red channel using 10 minute subs on the HA, green and blue. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the LX200 did on the 10 minute subs.
