Kron­ber­ger 24 in Cygnus

Kron­ber­ger 24 (Kn 24) is a plan­et­ary neb­ula in the con­stel­la­tion Cygnus with a dia­met­er of 190 arc seconds. It was dis­coverd by Mat­thi­as Kron­ber­ger, mem­ber of ‘Deep Sky Hunters’, a group of ama­teur astro­nomers, search­ing for unknown objects in DSS images. Kn 24 was lis­ted as a prob­able and con­firmed PN in this paper.

Sakib Rasool sug­ges­ted this tar­get which required long exposed Ha and OIII to bring out some details. North is up in this image.
