M27 in Vulpecula - The Dumbbell Nebula

M27 Dumbell 2

Bizibilder seems to be getting better at processing these images (He says with some modesty!).  This is Messier’s number 27, commonly known as the Dumbbell Nebula.  (20 x 1 min exposures using a 200mm telescope, unguided mount,  ISO 1600, for the techies!).  This is a similar object to the Ring Nebula a couple of posts back.
