Zoom in 1, NGC 7635

Coordinates/Direction : RA: 23h20m, DEC: +61o12'
Object size :
Object magnitude : 10
Object : NGC 7635 Bubble Nebula
Date : 2016-03-17
Comment : This is a strong zoom in of the Bubble Nebula. Nebulas are very hard for me to catch because of the light pollution so I'm very pleased to get this. You find this nebula in direction four a clock about one third of the distance from center in the main image, look at the full resolution image.

Zoom in 2, NGC 7538

Object magnitude :
Object : NGC 7538

Comment : Also this is a strong zoom in of a weak nebula. The strange color of the stronger stars comes from the fact that they are oversaturated. You find this nebula in direction three a clock close to the right edge in the main image.
