Another object made with technique of short exp astrophoto. M76 - Little Dumbell Nebula in Perseus - sometimes people said that this is most difficult object for visual observation due its small size.

Planetary nebulas are reaminigs of dying stars, not so massive to explode in supernova events. Similiar faith will be part of our Sun life in next 5 billion years.
