A magnitude 10 planetary nebula in the constellation of Gemini. Its appearance is often described as an Eskimo face surrounded by a Parka hood or as a Clown's face with the bright nose in the centre. South Park fans might recognise this as "Kenny"!
This image was taken from Conon Bridge on 17 February 2006 using a Meade DSI Pro at prime focus on a Meade 8" SCT. LRGB settings and exposures - L: 12 x 8s, R: 11 x 11s, G: 7 x 11s, B: 16 x 11s and each saved as a FITS file. The FITS images were combined using FITS Liberator in Adobe Photoshop CS and processed to enhance the structures in the nebula. [/COLOR]
