Description

This is not what I intended on imaging last night. I planned on imaging IC 1396 with my ED 80 because I've never imaged that object with that scope. After a couple of test images I decided that I probably needed to choose another target. The sky seemed clear but it was not what I call really transparent. There was also very heavy moisture which was affecting visibility. Next I moved to NGC 7023 the Iris Nebula. After taking three test images I decided this target probably wouldn't be a good choice either. I looked around and I could see half of Cassiopeia. I finally chose the Bubble Nebula as a target and decided to stick with it good or bad. I can't tell you how many times I go outside planning to image one thing and end up imaging something else. With all of that said please enjoy my most recent image of the Bubble Nebula.
