Description

A new image in my Messier At Home ([email protected]) project.
It is the M35 open cluster taken from my Bortle 7 sky.

The field is full of PGC Galaxies, but the surprise was the tiny blue dot to the east: the Abell 4 planetary nebula.
I didn't remember this object and I was really surprised seeing it in sky: at the very first I thought to a image defect, then I realized that it was a planetary nebula.
