|Bubble nebula using the Hubble palette. Total exposure time is 33 hours.|
The seeing in this image is ~3.2". It would have been nice to have 2" instead! I have not fallen for the temptation of sharpening and I don't think it would help much.
Earlier today I sent the narrowband images to my good friend, Henrik Bondo, who will attempt to process them into something that has more natural looking colors. So, for many reasons the image shown here is not the final one, after all. We can keep on working on our projects forever - and that's OK!
