A planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula, position RA 19 h 59.6 m, dec. +22° 43', and the first to be discovered, by Charles Messier in 1764. It measures 8' by 4' and is of eighth magnitude. The bipolar expulsion of material from the thirteenth-magnitude central star gives it its twin-lobed appearance; it was named by Thomas Webb, though it resembles a bow-tie more than a dumbbell.
