Planetary nebulae are amongst my favourite objects and the beautiful Dumbbell is one of the best.

I also love planetary nebulae. This is a great capture of M27 especially given it appears to be only one 35 second exposure! I suspect you'd get even more detail if you could stack 50 or 100 exposures of 30 seconds each. Great stuff.
