WIZARD NEBULA NGC 7380 (GUIDED)

Happy Halloween! In this version of the Wizard Nebula I increased the sub-exposures from 15 minutes to 30 minutes which required guiding.  I then stacked 11 images.  This increased the resolution substantially.

The wizard nebula is a cloud of interstellar gas and dust that lies about 8000 light-years from us. In a telescope you would probably only see the cluster of stars and not the nebula itself since it is very faint.
