    It is easy to see why this is such a popular target with its equally strong Ha and OIII signals. This is my first time on this particular part of the Veil and I collected some of the Ha subs at the end of July and have finished off this last week with 4 hours of Ha and 3 hours of OIII, despite the odd interruptions from passing cloud. Oh and one major interruption with a dying laptop and having to spend the best part of a day migrating and installing software on a new W10 pc. Thank goodness for UK Bank Holiday sales.
