An image of NGC 3242, the Ghost of Jupiter, has been uploaded

Hi all,

Following the reprisal of uploading new images, an image of NGC 3242, a planetary nebula has been uploaded.

This nebula shows two distinct nebulosities, the planetary itself and the surrounding nebula, the origin of which is not yet fully known. This is not an easy target, due to the very wide dynamic range found in the frame. You can find it at:

Enjoy!
