Planetary nebula in Eridanus
NGC 1535 is very similar to the Eskimo Nebula in both structure and color. Through our telescope this bubble of gas appears to glow a pale neon aqua. Visually the central star can sometimes be difficult to see- but in the image its existance is quite certain. NGC 1535 is no less than 1,500 light years away. Once you have seen NGC 7662, NGC 6826, and NGC 6543 - be sure to swing by Eridanus for this little gem.
