Description

The Helix Nebula has been a difficult object to acquire for me. The difficulty comes from the fact that it rises maximum 26 degrees above the horizon at my location and the imaging conditions at those altitudes are harsh. However I love this stellar object and my photo!

Image has been captured from the city of Sofia as always - from the terrace :)
