M27 Deep Exposure 2013

M27 Deep Exposure 2013

M27 is an international collaboration between Andre van der Hoeven, Terry Hancock and myself. M27 aka “Dumbbell” nebula is a planetary nebula 1300 light years distant in the constellation Vulpecula.

This deep version uses almost 40 hours of data collected in Michigan, Alabama and Holland. Using narrowband filters we were able to capture the outer hydrogen and oxygen shell of M27 which is not normally visible in amateur images.
