Soul Nebula – Brian Poole

Posted by Stellarvue on 18th Apr 2019

This luminous image of the Soul Nebula in Hubble Palette is shared by Brian Poole. He “Owned the Night” with his 80mm Stellarvue triplet. Brian also shared a recent field shot in the desert with his camping gear in the background of his imaging gear. He noted being raised off of the ground is a good idea when there are snakes, scorpions, and tarantulas lurking in the dark. Brian also had this to say about the image: “For this image I drew a lot of inspiration as far as color goes from images produced by another Stellarvue user, Alan Pham. I'm really happy with how it turned out and honored to have it picked as the StellarShot of the week.”
