About this image

This is a stack of 20x60s at 0".65 per pixel. The seeing was reasonably good (2".4 FWHM) but I have sharpened the image a bit. The central bright region is very starlike and there are suggestions of some features in the extended circular coma. With this deep image I get an expansion velocity of 210 m/s.
