Description

My efforts to date on the NE portion of the Cygnus Loop/Veil Nebula complex with an H alpha filter and better resolution than my previous attempts with a wider field. I hope to add more integration time, but good nights have been rare. This is a wonderful target, with the fine filaments beginning to be more separated with the longer focal length. Processing in Maxim, with a DDP stretch and unsharp mask.

The new version increases the number of subframes from 15 to 40 in order to reduce the image noise to the point that I'm happy with it, and I corrected the title.
