Description

NGC6210 belongs to that breed of PNs that had allow me to go head-to-head with the HST... in my imagination. Bright and plenty of features, responds well to both the OIII and H-Alpha (to a lesser extent) with a notable contribution from H-beta too so there is plenty to keep entertained the adventurous. The outer ansae are dimly visible in my picture 'cause I went for the bright central core with short exposures to capture the best moment of seeing.
