Planetary nebula NGC 7076 / Abell 75

NGC 7076 / Abell 75

A small (0.93 x 0.93 arcmin apparent size) planetary nebula in Cepheus with a magnitude of around 14.
The nebula has not been captured very often (certainly not in this FOV) and there is little information to be found.
Even the distance is not really known: I was able to find 2 distances that are quite a lot apart with approx. 4800 light years and 7100 light years.

The original size (3295 x 2415px) can be found here
