M27-Dumbbell Nebula on 8/11/08

Here’s the Dumbbell Nebula – this is just 8 stacked images, but since each of them is 60s, the image is really the best I’ve ever gotten of it. Long exposures make a huge difference.

Well, while I’ve been doing this, clouds have started to roll in and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to see too many meteors tonight. I haven’t completely given up hope (I actually just saw one), but I’m not sure viewing conditions are going to be good enough for me to justify staying up extremely late.
