This is NGC 7635 – the Bubble Nebula in the constellation of Cassiopeia.

I originally processed the narrowband data for this image using the Hubble palette but I wasn’t happy with the results. Instead this rendition uses the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) palette which maps Ha to red, [OIII] to green, and [SII] to blue.

Ha = 23 x 600s, [OIII] = 21 x 600s, [SII] = 10 x 900s
