M27-Dumbbell Nebula on 8/6/08

With 60s exposures, the central star (the blue dot in the center of the nebula) really stands out. M27 is a great target – it’s not hard to find and it’s easy to see in the eyepiece as well as in the camera. I still think it should be called the Apple Core Nebula though.
