Celine's Planetary

This is the latest image out of Clayton Observatories and it is dedicated to my mother in law Celine who made the great age of 97. Like this planetary nebula she was a light amongst other stars but was unique in her own way. You'll be missed and my birthday now will be one less of us to share it with.

NGC2818 itself is located in the constellation of Pyxis at a distance of 10,400 light years. Whilst it appears to be part of the open cluster, radial velocity measurements suggest it is a chance optical alignment.

This image is an integration of 11.2 hours of Ha, OIII and RGB data.

I think it looks a bit like an insect of some description but cannot decide which one. In any event I think it looks interesting.

That's superb. There are very few amateur images of this beast, but yours is the best we've found.

I'm a bit late with this one Paul. It's a nice image for sure with a lot more detail than when I imaged it many years ago.

Cheers

Steve
