NGC 7662 is a noce planetary nebula in the constellation of Andromeda. It has the nickname "The Blue Snowball". The central nebula is surrounded by a faint but extensive halo. There is also a small jet at about the 3 o'clock position, but I fear I haven't exposed long enough to really bring that out. This is my first deep sky image so I'm on a steep learning curve.
