Christmas Eve Images – IC 1514 or The Crystal Ball Nebula

I've not often seen this planetary nebula imaged - it's a bit small but interesting none the less.  In Taurus and about 600ly away, Discovered by Herschel in 1790.

ED120APO, EQ6 EQMOD, ST80 PHD guiding, 5min subs, modded Canon 1000D, processed in DSS and PS.  24 x 5mins lights = 2hrs exposure, 24 bias and 24flats.

Full size crop and full frame - as always needs more data!! (Click to enlarge):
