Description

Pa 1 is a small (12 arc sec) planetary nebula in Cygnus. It was discovered by my very good friend Dana Patchick on 18 October, 2003. It has historic significance as it is the first planetary nebula to be discovered by an amateur astronomer since Walter Gale discovered IC 5148/5150 in 1894.
