NGC 6565 (2013)

NGC 6565 looks to me like a miniature Ring Nebula. I’m rather fond of these nebulas with rather rainbow-like gradients from blue in the center to red at the perimeter.

I made an effort to reduce the size of the stars which would otherwise be bright green due to the green channel being f555w.

Green: hst_07501_01_wfpc2_f555w_pc_sci
Blue: hst_08773_01_wfpc2_f502n_pc_sci

North is NOT up, it’s 45° clockwise from up
