M27 in color
M27, also known as the Dumbell Nebula. Overall, the surface brightness of the extended ionized gas emission is one of the highest for any Planetary Nebula; therefore this object is easily seen through even small telescopes (including most finders).
This is a color composite image made by Karen Gloria at Hopkins Observatory using a 6-inch refractor and a 512x512 element CCD detector. From Greg Bothun's collection at the University of Oregon.
The planetary nebula Messier 27, as photographed by Bill Keel of the University of Alabama. This is a 120-second red-light exposure (in twilight) with a Tektronix 2048x2048 CCD at the prime focus of the 4-meter Mayall telescope of Kitt Peak National Observatory. North is at the top and east to the left, the field is 14.3 arcminutes square.
