The Dumbbell Nebula is a planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula.
M27 is a large and bright planetary nebula. It is easily viewed in almost any telescope and can be seen from moderately dark skies. It's also easy to photograph and is a good target for testing.

This image was taken at an acreage near Warspite, Alberta. It was pretty windy that night and the mount was somewhat overtaxed and unsteady. And it's only 20 minutes of total integration time. Still, the color came through quite well and some of the details did too.
