NGC7635 The Hubble Bubble

More clear cloudless sky meant I could finish off the Bubble nebula, NGC7635 in Cassiopeia. Over two nights I captured all three narrow band image sets, Ha, OIII and SII at 2.5 hours per filter giving 7.5 hours total exposure time ( also known as integration time ). Again working on the Hubble palette, the image comes out predominantly green as the Ha data is ascribed to the green channel and Ha is most common in the bubble nebula, the OIII and SII added some extra detail by the look of things. The final colour is achieved by adjusting the selective colour in Photoshop. No problems occurred during the the two nights imaging, the auto guiding was very good as can be seen from the graph, this steady guiding helps keep the stars from elongating an makes detail sharper.

  1. Great image. Awesome! What a difference it makes being able to get the time in for the filters. Thought the last image was good but there’s no comparison. This really is a cracker Olll and Sll definitely make a difference and add to the Ha. Nice work.

    btw when my heart trace is as flat as that I’ll be dead. 😦 Great tracking.
