M52 and the Bubble Nebula

M52 and the Bubble Nebula

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.
