Description

Weinberger 1-10 (We1-10, PK 086+05.1, PN G086.1+5.4) is a planetary nebula in Cygnus.

We1-10 is a highly evolved planetary nebula that's fairly large (~190" but has an extremely low surface brightness and hiding within Lynds Bright Nebula 381 (LBN 381). The Nebula was first noted in 1977 by Ronald Weinberger. His paper lists the magnitude of the central star at 18.1 and 18.7 for the blue and red bands respectively. This star can be seen as the small bluish dot in the middle of the nebula. He also lists the surface brightness of the nebula to be between 22.1 and 25.8 mag/sq-arcsec (depending on the spectral band).
