The Cat's Eye

The little blue object in this photo is NGC 6543, otherwise known as the Cat's Eye Nebula. I will let you guess why it is called that. This is not the best image in the world, but it does bring out some of the colors of this rather small object.

I took this with my DSI Pro using CMY filters. It is a composite of around 25 thirty second images for each color channel. I shot it through my MN66 Mak-Newt uniguided.
