The Eastern Veil

NGC 6995, RGB

June 27th, 2015

The Veil nebula complex is the remnants of a large supernova that exploded thousands of years ago. It is very large, and I was only able to fit the eastern half in my 600mm focal length. This object is located in eastern Cygnus.

Imaged this one at Ft. Davis, TX in pitch black skies. Looks ok, would have liked to have more data though. Thanks for viewing!
