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 is only three frames of four minutes each. So that's a mere 12 minutes of total integration time. But even with that little data, the color, structure and even some details showed up.
