The Soap Bubble Nebula

Recommended Posts

Here is my capture of PN G75.5+1.7, the so-called Soap Bubble Nebula in Cygnus. A lovely but very dim object. Hence the stars in this image are somewhat overcooked to bring it out.

The weather hasn't been kind at all, and it is fast disappearing behind my roof in early evening. Sadly I don't think I'll have much opportunity to add to it. This was the result of nearly 20 hours of imaging over seven nights during the past month during the brief gaps in cloud cover.

Atik428ex, 200mm f/5 Newtonian. Off-axis guiding with QHY 5-ii cam. 13 hours of 15 minute exposures in O-III, and 7 hours of HA. Field of View 19.6 x 27.8 arcmin.

It's a fascinating object, which was only discovered by amateur astronomer Dave Jurasevich as recently as 2007.
