M27 - 5.8.2022 at 00.00 - 5.8.2022 at 00.20 Janakkala, Tervakoski Observation number 108086

Visibility IV / V

Petri Kuossari, Riihimäen tähtit. yhdistys

Last night I got in to drive the new Vespera, and I wasn't disappointed, the tube weight is only five kilos and I was able to observe in five minutes. M27 was selected as the first target

The image has not been processed in any way, copied directly from Vespera's memory, the sky was not yet completely dark.

I got this tube specifically for shooting, with eVscope it seems like all the time goes to scientific observations. It seems quite promising for that purpose and can always be taken on trips.

This is where the deep sky shooting starts after the summer.

      Planetary nebula is the remnant of a death star. It could be ring-shaped, disc-like or spread out rather irregularly.

      With the exception of some nearest objects planetary nebulae have a small apparent diameter and they need a rather big instrument to be visible.
