Very nice!

 

I just did a 17 hour SHO image hoping to catch the Soap Bubble only to discover I did not have correct camera rotation. Doh!

 

Someone obviously moved the target. That is my story and I am sticking with it. 😉

@jeffmorgan Thanks Jeff!

Well, it's a soap bubble...they dance, pop, and spawn in the ether...

I've done both a SHO and LRGBHOS of the Cresent...but I find that it pops in O-III ...picking up the Wolf-Rayet shock wave and the Soap Bubble really well. I am now working on a LRGBHOO version, the SII doesn't really boost any of the nebulosity at all. I get plenty of signal in Red, but may shoot another set of LRGB adjusting gain...I find the Red tends to blow out easily in this region.
