Jones-Emberson 1 (PK 164+31.1), also known as the Headphone Nebula, is a 14th magnitude planetary nebula in the constellation Lynx at a distance of 1600 light years. It is a relatively larger planetary with low surface brightness. Capturing this beautiful faint planetary nebula from a Bortle 7 suburban sky is not an easy thing to do.
