Description

Imaged on nights of 2020/9/21, 2020/9/22, 2020/9/23, 2020/9/26, 2020/9/30, 2020/10/1, 2020/10/2

Abell 59 (PK053-03.1) is an almost never imaged planetary nebula in Sagitta. This is the first image on Astrobin. Abell59 is small , measuring 1.5 arc minutes and has a magnitude listed at 16.8. It shows some on the RGB image. The Oiii signal is much stronger than the Ha, and they have very similar distributions.

This is everything I could find on the web about this PN. Very obscure.
