    Description

    Hi all.
    Here is a beautiful planetary nebula, blue without doubt!
    Taken in collaboration with my good friend Aldo.
    Two C11 on the same target: maybe one day we'll do some interferometry! :D
    Ciao!

    Update #1: slightly better noise reduction.
    Update #2: contrast improved and greenish background colour cast removed
