Description

I have imaged NGC 6888 before, however, I have always wanted to capture the Soap Bubble. In this image, both are included. I actually wasn't certain the Soap bubble was in the image until stacking, at which point it was a pleasant surprise to see it

Thanks for looking, and I hope you enjoy it.
