Righteous, Immaculate Heavenly Bodies
M57: Ring Nebula
Wie ein blaues Auge im Himmel, so existiert diese wuenderschoene Nebula. A fine textbook example of a planetary nebula, a cloud from an exploding star surrounding the remnant white dwarf
M13: Globular Cluster
Globular Clusters aren't the most photogenic when taken in color. This is M13 which is on the side of Hercules.
M1: Crab Nebula
It was a hazy night with the dew cap on. Even at long exposure times (which this picture is composed of), the nebula still looked like the hazy blob that you see which we also saw at short exposure times. The nebula is the remnant of a supernova that went off early this millenium and was purportedly seen and recorded by the Chinese. They were very observant people and achieved greatness by inventing playing cards and gunpowder.
