M97 Owl nebula

Here is another planetary nebula called Owl nebula. It is approximately 2000 light years far from solar system and its diameter is approximately 1 light year. Here I played with the composition, in order to capture another deep space object – M108 Surfboard galaxy (left bottom).

M106 Galaxy

This spiral galaxy is located in constellation Canes Venatici (hunting dogs) and it’s approximately 23 million light years away from earth.

Picture is not optimal, during post-processing I notices triangular stars. So next year I will point my telescope to M106 and collect the photons coming from there again.
