Bubble shape formed by a star moving the nebula’s gas.

A bit low in the sky this month but still a got nice image.

Three good nights in a row. Short nights but with my reliable setup managed to collect a good ten hours of data.

Bright object and one my favourites to image.

Trying a hubble palette image this time. A little bit of oxygen component which helped to define the bubble.

Data collected on three nights. 14th & 15th & 16th May 2016.

Sii/ha/oiii image with 9 hours and 55 minutes of data. 14 x 15min Sii, 19 x 10min Ha, 13 x 15min Oiii 1×1 binning.
