Description

NGC 2452 is a Planetary Nebula in the Puppis constellation. NGC 2452 is situated south of the celestial equator and, as such, it is more easily visible from the southern hemisphere.

Could find little more information.

There is one other image on Astrobin also with the open cluster, which makes a nice framing.

Size according to the list below the diameter is 19 arc" and magnitude 17.7.

>>>> GENERAL INFORMATION ON BRIGHT PLANETARY NEBULAE:

I have a list of the 100 brightest PNs and am brainlessly going down the list (along with the rest of the Abells). I am just entering them in Expert Scheduler and it does the work.

These are so bright they do not require much imaging time. The list is on:

100 Brightest Planetary Nebulae

My own PN collection is here:

Planetary Nebula (Abell)

The Abells are sorted by number and behind the Abell's are other miscellaneous PNs that I have imaged.

Gary Imm has a wonderful list of PN morphologies:
