Description

The Eastern Veil Nebula came out very strong in both the Ha and OIII filters. I put Ha in the "Red" at 100% and OIII in the "Green" and "Blue" channels at 100% each. This nebula is better suited for a wide field scope, but I liked the amount of detail that can be picked up with more focal length.
