M57 Ring nebula Infinity
« on: August 02, 2016, 08:57:25 am »
The Ring Nebula (also catalogued as Messier 57, M57 or NGC 6720) is a planetary nebula in the northern constellation of Lyra. Such objects are formed when a shell of ionized gas is expelled into the surrounding interstellar medium by a red giant star, which was passing through the last stage in its evolution before becoming a white dwarf.(Wikipedia)

If the seeing conditions are good the Infinity do miracles.

Also 200 mm reflector helps very much.

This picture was taken yesterday and the target was almost 70ยบ of altitude. This helps too :)

Both great images with the central stars.  The infinity is a great camera

Agreed.  Best of all, you don't need a G11 and a super fast scope to get good results.
