I added a new color data for the Bubble nebula.
Original color data was from spring 2007.
New data is much deeper than old one.
LX200 GPS 12" f6.3 + SXV-AO (Active Optics system)
Exposure time is 4h for H-a and 2h with UHC-s filter for RGB.
HaR(Ha)GB image is combined from the data.
60% Ha added to R-channel and luminance transparency was 70%
