A new discovery by my dear friend Marcel Drechsler of a probable planetary nebula in Aquila. Although Marcel first detected this in May 2019 it is only now that it has been fully imaged. Drechsler 29 is large (16 arc minutes) but very faint, especially in OIII - hence the long integration time.
As a bonus we also have the smaller (27 arc seconds) known planetary nebula IPHASX J193308.9+15535 (PNG 051.7-01.7) at the top of the image. This is the first time this has been imaged in colour.
Data capture: Peter Goodhew
Image processing: Marcel Drechsler
Image captured on my remote dual rig at Fregenal de la Sierra in Spain between 5 July - 18 August 2021.
Scopes: APM TMB LZOS 152 Refractors
Cameras: QSI6120wsg8
Mount: 10Micron GM2000 HPS
A total of 103 hours image capture (HaOIIILRGB)

Thanks for posting. It looks like there is a faint, blue star near to the center of the nebulosity. Perhaps that's the source of this planetary nebula.

Hi,

 

Very nice! Try for an APOD. That should make it.

Yes that's the white dwarf
