Hi All,

Hope you are all keeping well.

Here is an image from the 26&27th of September NGC 6960 the Veil Nebula west in H Alpha. It was quite misty witch just seemed to enhance the light pollution the sky was an orange glow. I managed to get 40x5min exposures Darks was 16x5Mins Transparency was about about 5 medium haze seeing was not bad about 6 out of 10.Total exposure was 200 Min So 3 Hrs 20 Mins.

Hope you like.

Outstanding Carl - Wow in a nutshell. Incredible structure. I love the contrast between nebulosity and bright foreground star. Nicely done!. The Veil is one of my favourite objects to observe visually.
