Description

NGC6992, part of the veil nebula complex. From my backyard in heavy light pollution. I must say that I am pretty happy with this one and the modifications to my gear. The Astronomik filter helps alot, altough it seems to kill almost the blue color and I think it introduces a lot of garbage in the red color (see the red lines across the pictures). If anyone has a suggestion, please feel free to comment!

Have a great sky!
