Stunning Photo of the Dumbbell Nebula
Thanks to Tony Hallas for sending another amazing image of our universe! This is a picture of the Dumbbell Nebula (M27), located in the constellation Vulpecula. This nebula is about 1360 light-years from earth.
This photograph was taken in California using Chroma astronomy filters. To see more of Tony’s work on his website astrophoto.com, click here.
Chroma Technology manufactures the highest quality astronomy filters with durable, sputtered hard coatings using single substrates of the best glass, eliminating the need for laminations. All primary filter coatings are applied on the front surface and anti-reflection coatings on the rear surface to prevent ghosting and to maximize transmission.
