Another bright planetary nebula to capture during a full moon.
NGC 1501 is a complex planetary nebula in the constellation Camelopardalis.
It’s progenitor star is a pulsating star, meaning that its brightness varies regularly and periodically. In the case of NGC 1501’s progenitor star, this is incredibly fast, with the star’s brightness changing significantly in just half an hour.
