PK 164+31.1 - NGC 2475
Penryn, California
February 2003
FS-128G  (ag, ST-4)
ST-10XME RRGB 20 minutes each

A mag 12 planetary nebula in Lynx.  PK164+31.1 is approximately 1,600 light years distant.  This object is definitely on my list for a revisit.  This image was acquired over five nights during the month of February, each night was a battle with heavy dew.

There are numerous faint galaxies in this image.
