M 27 The Dumbbell Nebula

Sunday's evening in the observatory (first in nearly two months) due to forest fire smoke and just plain a lot of cloudy nights: 

The Dumbbell Nebula (M 27)

Taken with the Meade 8" LX200GPS scope at prime focus, modified Canon XS, ISO 1600, 17 minutes (stack of 34 - 30 sec exposures with Deep Sky Stacker).
