A late Bubble + M52 (130pds)


Recommended Posts

Yes, its a bit late in the day to be doing this one (can only get a few hours on it now), but I needed to point the telescope at something away from the Moon. Its too close to Orion for me to contiune the megamosaic, so I thought I would have a go at the Bubble. Havent done it for a couple of years, so time to see what the 130pds can do if given a couple of hours on target.

I found there to be more Ha in this area than I first thought, so I would like to return at some point and have a go at the background Ha (probably needs 2-3 more hours of 15min subs to grab it properly).

I'm pretty pleased with the field, no dodgy corners and just a slight gradient from the Moonlight.

No cropping :) (not bad for the SWCC)

Thanks for looking!
