The bizarre looking Crescent Nebula on the left is 5000 light years away and it created by imploding, exploding stars.
The faint Soap bubble right center was actually just discovered in 2007 by an amateur astrophotographer with a 160mm refractor and later verified by the International Astronomical Union.

Looks like the post size issue has been resolved :)

Another stunner. I'm blown away by what you achieve in a metropolitan area.
