Description

This is a work-in-progress. I currently have 17 Oiii subs and 9 Ha - I front loaded the Oiii while the moon was cooperating. My goal is >20 subs per channel. All subs are 15 minutes, binned 2x2.

This is a Wolf-Rayet ring nebula around the star WR 134 in Cygnus, approximately 6000 light years away. The Crescent Nebula is also a WR nebula. In this case, WR 134's stellar winds are causing a faint bubble nebula to be created within the ISM. This is the final stages in the life of the star, before heading towards a supernova (generally, type 1b or 1c).
