NGC 6543 Cat's Eye PN

NV Imaging

NGC 6543 Cat's Eye PN

Taken with 8" Newt, 2x Barlow, NVD, iPhone 12 Pro Max with some in-camera digital zoom, NightCap, ISO 3200, 1/4s exposure averaged 8s. Editing in iPhoto for contrast and black point. It is interesting to compare this phone NV image of the Cat's Eye with on-line, long-exposure images at about the same scale. The Cat's Eye is pretty brilliant with lot's of detail for long exposures... compared to this 1/4s exposure using Night Vision. This was the first time I had captured the faint H-a surrounding the bright core... which I could not see visually at the NV ocular.
