NGC 6572 

 

This compact, low excitation, radiation bounded PN has been observed at six position angles with Telescopio Nazionale Galileo (TNG) + SARG (spectral range 4600-7900 A, slit 26.7 arcsec x 0.40 arcsec, spectral resolution 115000).

The fixed image at the start of the movie corresponds to the nebula as seen from Earth (North is up and East is left).
Each movie is about 110-260 Kby in size (avi) or 80-500 Kby (animated gif).
