Description

Imaged on nights of 2020/8/28, 2020/8/29, 2020/8/30, 2020/9/3, 2020/9/4

Abell 54 (PK055-06.1) is an almost never imaged planetary nebula in Vulpecula. This is the first image on Astrobin. Abell54 is very small oval shaped, measuring only 1.1 by 0.8 arc minutes and has a magnitude listed at 17.1. It is very faint showing nothing on the RGB image. The Ha and Oiii signals are of equal strength. The outer rim is Ha with Oiii center.

This is everything I could find on the web about this PN. Very obscure.
