Description

Abell 6, a small (188 arc seconds) planetary nebula in Cassiopeia that is overshadowed by it's larger, more flamboyant neighbour HFG 1. So I decided to give it more of the attention that I think it deserves by going deeper, and with higher resolution, than it normally receives. It was first catalogued by George Abell in 1955.
