Description

Abell 71 is a faint planetary nebula in the constellation Cygnus. It has a diameter of 168 arc seconds and is 2,400 light years from Earth. 
This was a joint project with my good friend Sven Eklund, with data captured on both my dual rig of 6" refractors and his Celestron C14 EdgeHD - all located in Southern Spain.
