The Ring Nebula in the constellation Lyra is the result of a star exploding and throwing off a cloud of gas. We see it as a ring (with what’s left of the star in the middle). This object is comparatively small. (In terms of apparent size M31 (below) is about 6 “Moons” long in its entirety, the ring is roughly the same size as a medium sized crater on the moon!). Bizibilder thinks it is a rather pretty object! It is decidedly green/blue to look at.
Techie: 22 Minutes of exposure, ISO 800, 200mm reflecting telescope.
