PN G75.5+1 Soap Bubble Nebula

Curdridge Observatory, Southampton,UK
Object name: PN G75.5+1 Soap Bubble Nebula
Apparent RA: 20h 15m  Apparent Dec:38d 02m
Constellation: Cygnus
The Soap Bubble Nebula, PN G75.5+1.7, was only discovered in 2008 by an amatuer astronomer - and no wonder - it is a very low contrast feature tucked in the clouds of Cygnus very close to the Crescent Nebula.

Still not many hours of darkness at this time of year, and I have some glitches in the guiding, but still got nearly 3 hours of data using my Astrodon 3nm Ha filter. Had to delete a few frames due to clouds.
