M52 and the Bubble Nebula

[M52/Bubble]

About this image

Open star cluster M52 (NGC7654) and the Bubble emission nebula (NGC7635). This combination of CCD images from the Kitt Peak Burrell Schmidt telescope extends more than a degree across the sky (twice the diameter of the full moon). A closer view of M52 is also available, as well as an excellently detailed image of the Bubble Nebula from the KPNO 2.1-meter telescope.
