Had an hour tonight between 8-9 so grabbed what looks like the last clear dark bit of sky for a while - been trying to get this nebula for about a year - the one in the middle is supposed to look like a bubble - shame the image scale is so small - will have to work on that when I get my new setup working.

Unbeknown to me there were 2 other astronomical objects in the frame - NCG 7538 the red nebula atthe top and M52 the open cluster of stars to the bottom of the frame - Proves to those who are watching that there is a lot of stuff up there to see at least.

11 x120 second exposures f6 iso 1600 darks and offsets subtracted, processed in photoshop.
