Chandra sheds new light on McNeil's Nebula

This small nebula was discovered with a 3-inch telescope by amateur astronomer Jay McNeil in January 2004.


I rarely give my comments online on anything but I was so impressed that a person with only a 3 inch made such a great discovery before those who have large or giant telescopes.<br><br>I have an 8 inch Celestron but I plan to get a 6 inch refractor and I'm very excited now that I may end up discovering something. <img class='' src='' alt='shocked' title='shocked'/> <br><br>Jean.
