M27 The Dumbbell Nebula with its faint outer wings!!
This is a dying star in the constellation Vulpecula, it is blowing off its outer atmosphere, and it is located about 900 light years away from Earth.
M27 is a wonderful object to view in any size telescope, as it is easily visible through the telescope from any dark location.
This was a shot I captured back in Sept. 2022, and I just got around to processing the data, my recent image shows the Dumbbell’s faint outer wings, sadly clouds rolled in to kill my imaging session, but was happy with what I did capture data wise from my backyard in Dayton.
C6 F5 Newtonian reflector telescope, Baader Coma Corrector, Bisque MyT Mount, ZWO 294MC cooled Cmos Camera, L-Enhance Filter,
ASI Air, via Wi-Fi to my Ipad, 33 x 2 minute sub exposures, 66 minutes total integration time, from my backyard observatory(bortle8) in Dayton, Ohio.
