Tiny planetary nebula in Cygnus constellation.
The brightest planetary nebula on the sky.
It is really young - it's started its evolution 600 years ago so now the inner torus of ionized gas is really densy and bright.
Outside inner torus you can find coverge of dust and gas which is creating characteristic red lanes.

Due to fact it is extremly bright and small I was able to use very short exposure times - from 100 to 250ms
I collected thousands of frames which allow me to rebuild depth and create nice, easy to stretch stack.

Scale of the picture is around 0,136''/pix !!
