Bubble Nebula


A collection of my DEEP SKY photographs starting October 2015, giving a staggering view of the wonders of the night sky, mostly invisible to the naked eye!
These images were captured using a standard Canon 7D DSLR camera, and recently, a (self) modified Canon 40D DSLR and a ZWO ASI 120MC planetair camera for guiding, together with a TS 80mm f6 APO triplet refractor telescope. All images captured from my backyard!
