M57-Ring Nebula on 5/1/08

Okay – one more… After getting M13, I couldn’t resist going to M57 – the Ring Nebula. This was another target I hadn’t imaged or seen with my LXD75 or DSI-II. It was so much brighter and crisper than in my old scope – just beautiful. I really like planetary nebula and can’t wait to try the Dumbbell Nebula with this scope – it should be quite large with a lot of detail.
