Description

This image is the sum 480 60 secs unguided subs taken on the nights of the 16th and 18th of July. Imagin train was Newton 250 F 3.9 Orion + QHY183M cooled + Baader 8.5 nm O3 filter, on top of an IOptron CEM60. A lot of wind in those nights and stars were not so nice. For the center of the nebula I have taken 600 1 sces subs.

NGC 6826 (also known as Caldwell 15) is a planetary nebula located in the constellation Cygnus. It is commonly referred to as the "blinking planetary", although many other nebulae exhibit such "blinking". (Wikipedia)
