Location of Photo:

Taos, New Mexico

Date/Time of photo:

Feb. 21, 2017 - 1:44am MDT

Equipment:

18" f/4.5 reflector. The drawing was made with a 2B pencil on Canson drawing paper, then processed with GIMP 2.8 software.

Description:

This a small, but tight and bright, planetary nebula in Corvus. It appears almost like a spiral galaxy, and with averted vision, some spiral "arms" can be seen. Note the absence of nearby stars. You might need an object locator, like Sky Commander, to find this.
