I've never seen the Dumbbells look like this!

Amazing what you can do if you have the right filters to capture different parts of the spectrum in an image. Here are some really different views of M27 and M76 (Dumbbell and Little Dumbbell). Taken in hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen wavelengths. I wonder if they have a little bit of normal visible light stirred in there too?
