Description

This is a zoom in on the Ring nebula, also known as Messier 57 or M57. This is a planetary nebula formed after a star expelled its outer layers in the process of contracting to a white dwarf. It is about 2-3 light years wide and 2500 light years from us. The picture was taken with a Canon EOS 600-D mounted on a telescope, with 30 seconds exposure time and ISO-1600.
