NGC 7635

I started this photograph last year at the Peach State Star Gaze that was held at the Deerlick Astronomy Village.  It is a wonderful place to camp and look up at the stars.  This photograph is of NGC 7635, SH2-162, also called the Bubble Nebula.  It is an emission nebula about 7,800 light years away in the constellation Cassiopeia.   The estimated width across the bubble is 10 light years.  Total exposure time 21.5 hours.  Hope you enjoy!
