"Bubble Nebulae and Friends" taken September 10, 2016 from Butter Pot Provincial Park, Newfoundland.

NGC 7635, but also known as Caldwell 11, is an emission nebula in the constellation Cassiopeia. The "bubble" is created by stellar wind from a nearby hot young central star - you will need to zoom in to see the bubble shape. Also in the image is M52, an open cluster and some other emission nebulae.

Images taken during a RASC observing session at Butterpot Park Sept 10, 2016. Equipment - Stellarvue 90mm APO, AVX Mount, StarSense (thanks Randy!), Polemaster and Canon 6D (modified). No autoguiding was used. Images stacked and processed in Deep Sky Stacker - 13, 60 sec subs @1600 iso

"Pleiades M45" taken September 10, 2016 from Butter Pot Provincial Park, Newfoundland.

Pleiades M45. The stellar dust which creates the visible nebulosity is apparently unrelated to the stars themselves, which just happen to be passing through.

 There were 6 club attendees for this observing session. Clear sky was intermittent but good enough in spurts to capture the above images. There was also some good observing done with binoculars and dobsonians during the session. Not to mention a few meteors and satellites visible naked eye.
