M27 The Dumbbell Nebula

The Dumbbell Nebula (also known as Apple Core Nebula, Messier 27, M 27, or NGC 6853) is a planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula, at a distance of about 1,360 light-years
This object was the first planetary nebula to be discovered; by Charles Messier in 1764. At its brightness of visual magnitude 7.5 and its diameter of about 8 arcminutes, it is easily visible in binoculars, and a popular observing target in amateur telescopes.

NGC 7380 The Wizard Nebula

For this image I used Ha,O111 and S11 filters on my usual kit,namely a SX Trius 694 camera on a Takahashi 106 refractor. Exposures,100m,60m and 50m were not really adequate for this target at this time of year so, using some magic from RegiStar, I incorporate data from a DSLR image taken in 2014.This did not improve detail, but may have given added depth to the picture.
NGC 7380 is an open cluster surrounded by the nebula in Cepheus discovered by Caroline Herschel in 1787.

Pelican Nebula

Close inspection of this image of part of the Pelican Nebula reveals a prominent ridge forming the neck with a dark tendril terminating in twin jets emanating from the tip.This signifies the presence of a protostar  catalogued as Herbig-Haro 555.The nebula is found in Cygnus, northeast of Deneb.
The imaging camera was a Starlight Xpress Trius 695 mounted on a Takahashi 106 refractor.12x600s exposures with a Ha filter were acquired in Nebulosity, preprocessed in AstroArt and modified in PhotoShop.
