An image of Frosty Leo Nebula.
"I was surprise that Frosty Leo nebula is brighter than I thought but smaller. It is a bi-polar nebula and you can see the dust lane between the two lobes. Of course, I enlarged a few times to see it clearly. Also, the exposure was very short at 10 seconds so the inner details can be seen. The Frosty Leo Nebula is not listed in any of the amateur literatures even the Uranometria 2000.00."
