On this page I collect my observations of the planetary nebula NGC 40 (Bow Tie Nebula) in the constellation Cepheus.

 

Introduction

The planetary nebula NGC 40 (Bow Tie Nebula) in the constellation Cepheus is hard to find with normal telescopes. For GoTo telescopes like the eVscope this is not a problem. In the eVscope, NGC 40 appears violet, and the central star is visible.
