Medusa Nebula

This is a pretty faint nebula, an 8800 year-old planetary nebula, situated a little northeast of Procyon.

It’s surface brightness is very low. During the imaging session, the nebula was almost invisible on the monitor. I’m really surprised it came out so good. Obviously this is not a narrowband image, it’s created using a One Shot Color camera.
