NGC 7635 The Bubble Nebula

NGC 7635 is the famous Bubble Nebula in Cassiopeia. At the center of the nebula is an 8th magnitude star, and about 6 arc minutes southwest is a brighter star (the brightest star in this image) of magnitude 6.7. The Bubble nebula is a very rare example of a planetary nebula around an OB star. In our own galaxy, there are only two known examples, the Bubble, and NGC 6164-5
