Spotted by Charles Messier in 1764, M27 was the first planetary nebula ever discovered. The term planetary nebula is a bit of a misnomer based on the nebula’s round, planet-like appearance when viewed through smaller telescopes.
The Dumbbell Nebula (also known as Apple Core Nebula, Messier 27, M 27, or NGC 6853) is a planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula, at a distance of about 1227 light-years. This object was the first planetary nebula to be discovered; by Charles Messier in 1764. At its brightness of visual magnitude . and its diameter of about 8 arcminutes, it is easily visible in binoculars, and a popular observing target in amateur telescopes.

The Dumbbell Nebula, also known as Messier 27 (M27), is a bright, large planetary planetary nebula located in Vulpecula constellation. The Dumbbell Nebula was the first planetary nebula to be discovered. Charles Messier included it as M27 in his catalogue of deep sky objects in 1764. This will be the fate of our Sun in roughly five billion years.

The Dumbell Nebula in the constellation of Vulpecula. M27 is a planetary nebula which is formed when a star dies. Our sun will experience a similar fate someday (billions of years from now). Taken with a Celestron 8" Telescope at F. 8 Minutes of Red 6 minutes of Green 12 Minutes of Blue Combined and processed in ImagesPlus and Photoshop. In astrophotography, they expose the CCD sensor for every colour channel on it's own because of the weakness of the light, and then they put it all together into an RGB (RGB - red, green blue) photo. The exposure times are different, because the (what remains of it, anyway) star doesn't shine equally strong in every colour, and that's the way of balancing it. Hope you understand this.

Messier 27 - The Dumbbell Nebula. M27 is a favourite of amateur astronomers. Located in the constellation Vulpecula, it is a fascinating display of the power of the universe. As a low-mass star begins to decay, via mechanisms which are poorly understood, it sheds its outer layers into the surrounding space, leaving a central core to superheat these layers. The resulting light-show is called a planetary nebula. And no, it has nothing to do with planets. Astronomy can be very silly and has more historical baggage than I’d like to admit.
