This fabulous image of NGC 7635 – Bubble Nebula, was imaged by Alan Pham. In a previous wide field image of this nebula, the “bubble” appeared quite small so Alan wanted to show a cropped version to show a more personal perspective. To “Own the Night,” Alan turns to his trusted 4” Stellarvue refractor. We thought this image was a great way to start our 2019 StellarShot of the week. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Alan’s set up for capturing this great image is his Stellarvue SV4 on an Astro-Physics Mach1 GTO mount. He also uses a ZWO ASI1600MM-Cool imaging camera, QHY5L-II-M guiding camera, Astro-Tech AT2FF Field Flattener, and Astrodon OIII 1.25 3nm, Ha 1.25 5nm, SII 1.25 3nm filters. Alan’s total integration time was 27.9 hours. He captured the image last August from his backyard in San Jose, California, U.S.A.
We are thankful to be able to share this with the Stellarvue family, and hope you agree that this is truly a StellarShot. NGC 7635 image copyright Alan Pham.
