We present Hubble Space Telescope Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 images of a portion of the bright northeast rim of NGC 6888, the nebular shell physically associated with the Wolf-Rayet star HD 192163. The exposures are taken in the light of Hα λ6563, [O III] λ5007, and [S II] λλ6717, 6731. The images are used to constrain models of the ionization structure of nebular features. From these models, we infer physical conditions within features and estimate elemental abundances within the nebula… Expand
