Well last night wasn't a total bust, the clouds didn't want to cooperate & the telescope gremlins decided to show up

While waiting for Jupiter to get high enough I thought I would try M 57 a planetary nebula. Such a nebula is formed when a star, during the last stages of its evolution before becoming a white dwarf, expels a vast luminous envelope of ionized gas into the surrounding interstellar space.
I only have 100- 8 second frames stacked into this pic for only 13.3 minutes, so actually not too bad. The field of view is very small, I was using a small sensor camera at full 2033mm FOL
