Description

This is part of a continuing work in progress, a multi-panel mosaic of the Veil Nebula complex taken with my AT8IN. This is a 3-panel mosaic of the western part of the nebula including the Witch's Broom and Pickering's triangle in OIII and given false color using Carboni's Actions. I'll keep collecting data on the eastern portion in OIII, and then switch to Ha for a final 6-panel bi-color narrowband of the entire complex.
