Hi all,

Here is another electric blue planetary, sometimes called the Little Gem planetary. I caught it late at night as it was sinking toward the south western horizon.

AP 10" Mak-Cass @ F22, ST10XE, CFW
Luminance exposure 50 min total @1x1
RGB exposures 20 min total @2x2 bin

A very impressive image of the planetary NGC6818. This planetary, located in Sagittarius, shows complex detail. I wonder if the red streaks represent jets emanating from the central star? Thank you for sharing this image with us all.
