Messier 27,  The Dumbbell Nebula (also known as Apple Core Nebula), It is a Planetary Nebula about 1,360 light years away in the constellation Vulpecula.
I captured this image on June 19th from my backyard.
     I used my Celestron C8 telescope @f6.3  and my moded Canon XSi (450D) Camera.  I stacked  10, 240sec. exposures and processed the results using Photoshop CS6e, I was able to get my best image yet of the Dumbbell.  :)
     Now if only the weather would co-operate I could get on with photographing the rest of what summer night skies have to offer.
