The famous 'bubble' created by the shock wave of the stellar wind from SAO 20575 impacting on the extensive nebula surrounding NGC7635.

This image was actually made using a total of 46 five-minute exposures.  Half of the exposures were captured on 6th September 2015 using a 203mm Celestron C8 SCT at f/4.6.  The others were captured on 29th September 2017 using a 235mm Celestron 9.25 at f/10.

Image calibration, registration, integration and processing was carried out using PixInsight.
