I pointed my telescope at the sky for 25 hours to capture a dolphin

WR 134 is a variable Wolf-Rayet star located around 6,000 light years away from Earth in the constellation of Cygnus, surrounded by a faint bubble nebula blown by the intense radiation and fast wind from the star. It is five times the radius of the sun. I captured this one with narrowband filters and processed it in the Hubble Palette.
