NGC 6543 Cats Eye Nebula (130mm 7D).jpg
The Cat's Eye Nebula, a planetary nebula in Draco. This is a 4 x 8 minute exposure stack with the Canon 7D at ISO 800 and 130mm Astro-Physics refractor at f/6. The field is relatively wide and focal length too short to show much detail on this small object, but the field does simulate what you would see at low power through a telescope. Faint cyan bit at right is a fragment of NGC 6543 and carries number IC 4677. Faint 14th mag galaxy at left is NGC 6552.
