My attempts at astro imaging

The Dumbbell Nebula


This is a personal favourite image of mine. Taken at Kielder Star camp, I think in October 2008.

The Dumbbell Nebula is a planetary nebula and is the shell of gas blown out when a star goes supernova.  This is quite an easy late summer target for a medium sized telescope.
