Description

This is a sub-par image of one of the most beautiful planetary nebulae I've seen. The thing looks like an emerald or some priceless gem hung up there. It's also probably the most interesting thing in Delphinus.
This is another composition that was finished over the summer. Itching to get back to the observatory.
