M76, the "little Dumbell" - tiny part of the original frame - Processing by my good friend Edoardo Radice - "B" image is the full frame. The horrible reflex comes from the 4th (!) mag. Star fi Persei, about 1° out of the filed. I forgot to spray black a new Telescope-Camaera connettor. ARGH!!!

M 76, la "piccola Dumbell" - piccola parte dell'immagine originale - Elaborazione di Edoardo Radice . La "B" è il pieno formato. Il terribile riflesso deriva da un raccordo non annerito (errore da principiante!) e dalla fi Persei, che è di 4a mag. circa e 1° circa fuori campo.
