    Description

    The Crescent Nebula NGC 6888 is an emission nebula in the constellation Cygnus. It is "lighted" by the Wolf-Rayet star WR136. Th so called Soap Bubble on the right side of the image is the planetary Nebula PN G075.1+1.7 that was discovered by amateur astronomer Dave Jurasevich in 2007.

    The image is a little 2 panel panorama of data captured with my 130/910 mm TS refractor with and without the 0,79x reducer and a ZWO ASI 1600mmp
