This is an image of the Soap Bubble Nebula I did after it was discovered by a good friend and fellow imager, Dave Jurasevich. To read the story behind the discovery you can go to Dave’s website through my links, or, go to his site at
“www.starimager.com “ and through his “Image Gallery” you will find the whole story behind the discovery.
