Hey !

I send you N.G.C. 6543 “small and nice”.
The planetary is small, light and with some structures in high
power of my scope. The colour is yellow and its called “The cats
eye”. The central star is clearly seen in moments of steady air
and good seeng. An inner ring was seen round the star with a
darker area inside!
I used crayons (watercolours) on black paper only.
Location: outside Trondheim city, Norway.
More info on my sketch.
Have a clear sky: Per-Jonny Bremseth.

  1. Per-Jonny,

    Very nice sketch of a fine, bright, planetary nebula in the dragon.
    I do see it as more of a blue green color but the appearance in terms of shape and central star are a match to my eyepiece view. Nice post.

    Frank 🙂
