  1. Robert,

    Beautiful rendering of this brightest portion of the Veil supernova remnant.


  2. Thank you Frank
    A veil nebula especially eastern part of it, is a marvellous conglomerate of fibres frayed matter.
    This is a large object, so I usually use my lowest-power eyepiece : Swan 40mm witch nebular filter UB in Newton 305mm
    I could spend hours in watching this unusual, extraordinary spectacle, which make me out of touch with reality 😉
