SVX180T - The Helix

SVX180T - The Helix

Posted by Nicola Beltraminelli on 18th Sep 2023

Nicola Beltraminelli took this stunning image of the Helix Nebula (NGC7293) using his SVX180T. This planetary nebula is located in the constellation Aquarius and lies about 650 light-years away, spanning about 2.5 light-years. The remnant central stellar core of this nebula is so energetic that it causes the previously expelled gasses to give off a bright fluorescent glow.

9/23/2023: Update! The image was awarded Image Of The Day on Astrobin on 9/23/2023.
