Hello again,

After quite long break I’m back with new telescope and new portion of sketches.

So, This time I want to present you one of the most spectacular objest of summer sky – Veil Nebula. On sketch you can find only eastern part of this nebula complex..

Of course most impressive views you can achieved with OIII filter – you can see then a lot of gas fibres and observe a depth of the view (like 3D view).
Very impressive object for large mirrors (>10”).

Clear sky
