Description

This image is a two section mosaic of the veil nebula complex.

The Western Veil (near 52 Cygni) also known as the Witch’s Broom, Finger of God or Filamentary Nebula: NGC 6960

Eastern Veil: brightest area NGC 6992, trailing off farther south NGC 6995 and IC 1340

Pickering’s Triangle: brightest at the north central edge of the loop, but visible in photographs continuing toward the central area of the loop.

NGC 6974 and NGC 6979: Luminous knots in a fainter patch of nebulosity on the northern rim between NGC 6992 and Pickering's Triangle

Exposure time: Ha 14h + RGB 4h with a total integration time of 18h

Two section mosaic: for each section:
