Description

While waiting the main target to rise over the horizon and especially over my shelters 'horizon' I took NB-frames during 2 evenings of this familiar NGC 6888, which I never had photographed before.

The subframes are Ha, Sii, Oiii each 21 X 10 mins.

After I had tuned my picture I started to check other astrophotographer's pictures of the Crescent nebula, and noticed that some of the pics has the 'Soap Bubble' in them. Honestly I had no idea that the nebula even exists. So then I started to check my stacks and noticed that it is indeed on my stacks also. So, I tuned the pic again, but now only as HOO.
