Description

A widefield view of the Bubble, the Lobster Claw and the Northern Lagoon Nebula. Captured with the Celestron RASA 8" and processed in the Hubble Palette.

I really liked the green hue so I decided not remove it. Maybe I'll post an other version with the classic Hubble Palette Colors. Lots of post-processing time went into carefully sharpening the Bubble.

I hope you like it, comments are appreciated as always :)
