I've actually had two sessions this week with the moon down. Here are a few items:

NGC 7662 The Blue Snowball Planetary Nebula.

Nice to visit an old friend again and take a look. I love planetary nebula and think I am going to plan a all night observing session in December around new moon (weather permitting) that will allow me to take a tour of some of these wonderful dying objects. I think its wonderful how in the universe how things that die are used to create new things.

There's more, but that's enough I think. I do think I want to do a comparison of NGC 586 and 584 in both a wider field and with more power. Probably next year now. Thanks for looking.

Jay,
Nice stuff! A suggestion... When indicating the brighter, colored stars, they'll have much more 'punch' if you give them a tight white 'core'.

Glen,

Thank you for your input. I will try that moving forward. I blurred these on purpose with the blurring tool so the white inner core may just deliver the look I'm trying to capture. Thanks again.
