Southern Crab Nebula
A tempestuous relationship between an unlikely pair of stars may have created an oddly shaped, gaseous nebula that resembles an hourglass nestled within an hourglass.
This image shows the small nebula that is embedded in the centre of the larger one (you can see the whole nebula by searching for opo9932a in the search form).
