The Eskimo Nebula

The Eskimo Nebula is a small planetary nebula near the constellation Gemini. It is easily visible in a telescope, but is very small. I imaged it in this shot with my DSI Pro and Cyan/Magenta/Yellow filters. I did it through my Intes-Micro M500 with an F5 focal reducer. If you look closely in the zoomed in image, you can see the eskimo face in the parka for which it is named.
