WeSb3 Bicolor

WeSb3 is a very faint planetary nebula in the constellation Ophiuchus. There is very little information on this one and I am not aware of any color images. The discovery paper is here:

Total exposure time is four hours, 2 x 1 hour Ha (5nm)and 2 x 1 hour OIII (3nm) subs. Binned x 4. I suspect the blue density to the left is a filter reflection. It will require more time to bring out suspected additional extended PN structure. The possible outer structures around the planetary nebula were discovered by the Galactic Planetary Nebula Halo Survey (GPNHS) team in January 2015.

It astrounds me when I read that the location is your driveway! Thanks for taking data for this one, even I'm surprised that there is actually something there.
