The Veil Nebula


Davy Cannon

Hamilton, Scotland

Altair Astro Starwave 70ED triplet APO travel refractor, Altair Planostar v2 0.8 reducer, Canon EOS 60Da DSLR, Astronomik UHC clip-filter, NEQ6 Pro mount.

My first attempt to try and cover all of the Veil Nebula and the only scope I have that can cover the size of area was my 70mm refractor. I have imaged parts of the Nebula with larger scopes but just wanted that whole veil nebula ikmage, or as close to whole as I can get. After careful processing of the image I was amazed how well it came out due to being shot in Scottish summer light skies and from a light polluted back garden but that didn’t hinder the image.
