An excellent observation of the Spiral Planetary Nebula (NGC 5189/Gum 47/IC 4274) in Musca. This is a very interesting planetary nebula that most observers in the northern hemisphere are unable to see. The "spiral" features of this planetary nebula are prominent. Thank you for sharing it with us all.

Carlos, certainly is a fascinating object and on first glimpse you can't help but think "perfect barred spiral galaxy"
This object is magnification friendly due to its high sfc brightness and complex structure but the seeing prevented me from going much higher.
