imaged NGC 7027 (Halifax)

The BGO robot imaged NGC 7027 for me. A small planetary nebula in Cygnus. One of the RASC Finest NGCs. It is an unusual shape, almost rectangular with rounded corners. Informally known as the Magic Carpet. Once again, it seems blown out, overexposed. I used similar numbers as Adam Block.
