Description

The Bubble Nebula (bottom-left corner), the Northern Lagoon Nebula (bottom-right corner), and the Messier 52 Star Cluster (top-left corner) can be found by continuing the line running from stars Schedar to Caph in the constellation Cassiopeia. They are located approximately 7,100, 4,100, and 4,600 light-years, respectively, from earth.

This trio of deep-sky objects was photographed from my backyard through a telescope for over 16 hours across four nights between September 5-23.
