NGC 7354

About image
NGC 7354 is a planetary nebula in Cepheus: it has a magnitude of 12.9 and an angular size of about 20 ".
It is an object that has not been taken up in general, since even a few images can be found on the web.
In spite of the reduced angular dimensions, a double shell structure with a fairly "moved" surface is clearly visible; moreover, just a sort of gas jet emerges from the upper part of the nebula.
