NGC 7027 is a small and bright planetary nebula in the constellation Cygnus, referred to as the "Magic Carpet"

 

This PNe has a diameter of 55" and a visual magnitude of 8.5.

 

The gory details:

C925HD @ F10, ASI1600MM, PHD2 autoguided

R 2200/1.25s, G 2200/1s, B 2200/1s, 50 gain

Autostakkert 3 for registration and integration, Pixinsight for all other processing

Left is Red channel registration and stacking using AS!3, right is Pixinsight... for these small/bright ojects I find that planetary methods give me better results, these PNe are about the same size as planets but about 3 to 8 magnitudes fainter.
