Slightly off the beaten track, this is NGC5189, The Spiral Nebula. An interesting and irregular shaped planetary nebula 3000 light years away in the southern constellation of the fly (Musca).

GSO 10" F4 Newtonian, HEQ5 Pro, Canon 1100D FSM, Baader Semi-Apo filter, Baader MPCC MKIII, 585 x 30 seconds unguided.

Large field at Astrobin ---> https://astrob.in/351099/0/

Thanks aeroman. I definitely want to improve on this one. But it will need a bigger scope and better camera. It fascinates me.

Thanks Adriano. It is a very pretty PN for sure. I can see why people like to chase them.
