I declare it the tiniest object in the whole wide world.




Meh. There are much smaller planetaries out there. Hubble 2, for example.


Clear skies!

You shouldn't have mentioned it. Now I got to look for it. Ich danke Ihnen.

Nice sketch. IC 2149 looks easy to find on a star chart. I tried to find and see it with no success. It is a small object from what I have read.




You are correct. In my XT8, I didn't see it as non-stellar until I upped the power to 192x. It's also one of the very few planetaries I've received any response from a H-Beta filter.

Yup. The h-Beta let even the central star shine through. Maybe not really shine but it was most prevalent through it than my OIII or UHC filters.

Thanks Nick.

I'm on the Raspberry nebula right now. I'm warming up with some hot chocolate and Henry is licking my face. Cats give humans baths as well as each other.
