M27- Apple Core Nebula on 11/19/09

I’ve decided to just call M27 the Apple Core Nebula. It’s also known as TNFKATDN or “The Nebula Formerly Known As The Dumbbell Nebula”. It was a pretty nice night, though cold, until about 11, when wispy clouds started to mess up the view. I spent a while earlier seeing if I could gather images with my DSI which could be used for asteroid hunting, but came to the conclusion that with my setup, that’s not going to be possible. Anyway, at least I got one good image tonight…
