Description

Back to the small stuff. NGC 7026 is a tiny planetary Nebula in Cygnus that lies close to 63 Cyg the large star on the left of image. As can be seen in 63 Cyg my attempts to square the camera chip and drawtube to the mirrors, is getting closer now. The period of clear nights has helped a lot, as I'm not having weeks to see stars in between tweaks.

The image is just under 3 hours in Ha and OIII.

This Pn has been called the cheeseburger? The two bright parts could resemble a sesame seed bun with a lot of imagination. But the cheese slice is hard to fathom :-)

My nautical darkness is back over 2 hours now. Astro dark will return at the end of July where I live.
