Description

My first narrowband image... :)
Crescent Nebula and surroundings.
The Crescent Nebula looks like emerges from space. Was created by the brightest star we can find in the middle. A Wolf-Rayet star.
On the rest of the image we find huge amounts of ionized hydrogen. On the bottom we see a planetary nebula discovered by an amateur astronomer on 2008.
