    Default Crescent Nebula (NGC 6888) and Soap Bubble



    Hello all. I want to say first that I appreciate all of the great images members are posting here. This hobby isn't easy and takes a lot of time, effort and dedication. Thanks! I have an image that I won't be able to get back to until it's better positioned in the sky. If you look closely you can see the Soap Bubble too. For now I thought I would post the Ha. My details are below and a link as well.

    Nice start. Not sure I can see the Soap Bubble. I'll wait for more colors to "bring it out".

    Thank you! The bubble is faint. You can just make out the circumference of it in the middle of the upper right quadrant of the image. I guess that would be quadrant 1 on a coordinate plane.

    Knowing in advance where to look, makes finding the bubble a lot easier.
    Very nice.
    Be careful... The last time I played in this area, it ended up as a 12 panel mosaic....
    I actually got more data, but I wasn't happy with it.
    I'm happy with your data!

    Very nicely done!

    Can't see the soap bubble but I'm sure it is there. Regardless, the rest of the details are easily seen and nicely processed. Great work!
