Two Bubbles...

This did not turn out quite as well I wanted. Here is the Bubble Nebula, a large cloud of gas, where the central star has blown out a bubble with it's solar winds. It is a rather neat nebula. My camera did not do it justice. Feeling nostalgic, I did it with my oldest CCD, my SAC 8 II using some home made narrow band filters.

Here is the Hydrogen Alpha only image. I actually like it better. I used it for Luminance on the color image.
