12" Meade LX200GPS at Harken Observatory (Pewaukee, WI Library) with F6.3 telecompressor. StellaCamIII video camera operating in 4 frame integration mode. Approximately 1500 frames combined using Registax4.
Apparent shell structure with brighter/denser outer ring (looking through thicker outer edges of expanding sphere). Inner bright area non-symetric with nucleus. Large expanse required use of telecompressor for wider field. Photo by Scott Berg and Randy Buchwald
