Ngc6337

This is an image of NGC6337 which is a small planetary nebula in Scorpius. Located about 5200 light years away. It has similar characteristics to the Helix nebula, certainly the shape and some of the striations look very similar.

The image contains about 21 hours of integrated data in Ha OIII Lum and RGB.

Very fine indeed. I dimly recall doing that one a million years ago, before the civil war, and it reminded me of a wrist-watch, complete with band and a minute hand.

Beautiful capture and its colours stand out in an already very colorful field. One for the cool wall.

Cool little blighter that one Paul, has come out well.

I shot her a few years ago too... looks very similar...strangely

It looks quite similar to NGC 6369.

Nice! Dumb question, but I've always wondered how you guys get the star map overlays? I figure you enter a solve in something? But what generates the alpha channel or mask?

Thanks Mike, it does look like a wrist watch now that you mention it. Interesting perception.

Thanks Mike, yes both look similar to each other, though I think I prefer this one more. Your image was used as a reference image.

Markus the annotation is produced in Pixinsight. I did a solve of the image and then rendered the annotation over the top of the image.
