Hubble Bubble

The Hubble team has released this shot of a wonderful blue interstellar bubble that they captured in space.

Taken by Wide Field Camera Three, the subject is the Bubble Nebula, also known as NGC 7635, an interstellar space cloud that was first noticed in 1787. The center sun has ten to twenty times the mass of our Sol.

Previously the nebula was so big that it had to be photographed in multiple sections.

Probably a Canon camera shot. Should of used a Nikon, like all the best outer space photographers use.

Sorry but a little bit too much dynamic range to be shot by a Canon. Stars are always blotchy with that brand. Sorry, nice try. Canons are good for photographing sea sponges and rosacea.

I would say FU to both of you but that would be impolite! Your Friend, Mike

The finest outer space photographers use the Holga 120N glow in the dark camera,
with the Holga fisheye attachment.
Silly boys!
