Duck Head Nebula

Recommended Posts

Finally a clear sky on Thursday, so I managed to catch the Bubble Nebula just before if came too close to the horizon. Explore Scientific 127ED 14 x 8 min Canon 60Da ISO 1600 on EQ8.

I hope it is not just me that think it looks like a rubber duck head shooting out of the nebula and heading straight towards earth.........

No mushrooms Martin, it is a few months yet before they turn up, just akvavit since it is Saturday and the sky is grey.

Maybe the duck is floating on gravitational waves.

Gravitational waves... of course!.... That's why I keep oversleeping, time is changing but my body clock isn't!

Now to become my stock excuse for being late/early for anything... 'sorry, it was the waves...blame Einstein!'

      Friends,
      Last summer Wim @wimvband I entertained ourselves with processing freely available data (subs) from the Liverpool Telescope, since Sweden is too light for AP that time of the year. I was just told that one of my attempts on the Bubble made today's APOD! Yes I know, the data is from The Liverpool Telescope, a 2 m RC scope on La Palma, so not collected with my own stuff, but I did the stacking (Nebulosity) and processing (PS).
      Now I just have to come down to earth again...
