Two for the price of one

When I decided to have a try at M52 my poor knowledge of the positions of other DSOs outside of the Messier objects didn't prepare me for what I got. After doing a trial shot to see how well M52 was centered in the field I was a bit surprised to see some nebulosity on the edge of the image. Some quick research established it was The Bubble Nebula NGC 7635 so I adjusted the scope to capture both objects. I look forward to having a go at this using the CLS filter when conditions permit. Details: prime focus 10" f4.3 Newtonian 450D@ iso400. 15x 120 second exposures (images only) Deep Sky Stacker & CS2.
