Warning: date(): It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected the timezone 'UTC' for now, but please set date.timezone to select your timezone. in /home/yivumoo/public_html/show_object.php on line 167

Planetary Nebula

RA: 15h34m18s - DEC: -59o09'00" - Magnitude: 12.1 - Size: 26"

Tel: 16" S/C - 290x 462x - Date: 29 April 2009 Polokwane Vis 5.2+-

This is one of most memorable planetary nebulas I even laid eyes on. Let me explain, a nice round ring which looks like ghostly bubble blowing away in the wind. The dark inner part is clearly seen with high power, but no central star. It is just as I remember it from seeing pictures of this nebula. The northern edge of the planetary could be a tat brighter. A triangle of brighter stars can be seen in the north western star field. The use of the 0111 filter is doing the trick.
