Dumbell Nebula

Very pleased with these photos I took this week using the OU’s remote telescope (COAST)

The Dumbbell Nebula (also known as M 27, or NGC 6853) is a planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula, at a distance of about 1,360 light years from the Earth. Its central star, a white dwarf, is the largest white dwarf yet discovered.
