Re: (IAAC) Obj: Jonckherre 320 - Inst: 17" f/15 classical Cassegrain equatorial mount



I think you are correct. The Footprint nebula or M1-92 is a reflection
nebula with two halfs one brighter than the other. It has never looked
stellar to me. Campbells star almost always does and is one of the few PN's
that does not respond well to an OIII filter having almost no OIII emission
