This is just to crazy. Guy looking with a small telescope finds a Nebula.
Where did it come from? It just apeared?
In an era of huge ground-based telescopes, clever robotic sky scanners and powerful observatories in orbit, there are few deep space objects in our
galaxy that escape notice by professional astronomers. So no one was more surprised about the discovery of a new nebula than the amateur who stumbled
upon it with his small backyard telescope.
see, is things like this that make me happy, that some dude can just go out with a telescope and find a nebula. just makes me smile.
i think its easy enuf to not see one. space is big, huge, etc. as the deep space pic from hubble shows, its really a lot to focus on jsut one spot.
u can scan the entire universe for data like that, its not worth the money or the time
