I don't have any new material so I decided to make this poster with comparasion of some pictures of planetary nebulas made with Lucky Imaging Technique with pictures from Hubble Space Telescope (HST)

Of course pictures made from Earth will be always worse than HST - but with Lucky Imaging Technique we can get really close with the detail and resolution to HST

In presented photographs I used exposure times from 100ms to 5s. Detail on the final picture is mainly connected with seeing conditions (that's why detail is really good on NGC 1501 and significantly worse on NGC 7026)

Setup used for all of the pictures is:

Newtonian Telescope Sky Watcher 250/1200
Sky Watcher NEQ-6 mount
ZWO ASI 178-MMC camera
Baader LRGB filters
Baader MPCC III coma corrector
