    Dr. Don Goldman will give a talk on narrowband filters and planetary nebula. Don is the Founder and President of Astrodon Filters, co-founder of the Advanced Imaging Conference, recipient of the Clyde Tombaugh Award from RTMC, has over 30 APODs and is a popular conference speaker. Narrowband imaging is possible and may be the only option from light polluted areas. The advantages and use of narrowband filters will be presented. Planetary nebula, like the popular Ring and Dumbbell Nebula, are emission line objects that are well suited for narrowband imaging and their varied shapes denote their history and orientation to our line of sight. Our Sun will produce a planetary nebula before it shrinks to a white dwarf.
