It’s that time again. Another planetary nebula. I wish the left edge weren’t cut off. I did manage to complete the right side even though that doesn’t really help the composition. It’s ok, Hubble. I still love you.
Side note: One NGC number up from this is NGC 7027. The two planetaries are separated by about 5 degrees.

North is NOT up, it’s 73.3° clockwise from up.
Hubble data is public domain, but I put a lot of work into combining it into beautiful color images. The minimal credit line should read: NASA / ESA / J. Schmidt
