The veil nebula. This is taken with my recently refurbished 5" Jaegers f5 refractor. The lens is war surplus (circa 1940s). It was originally a glued lens but the glue went milky after many decades. The elements were separated and it is now an oil spaced objective. The entire tube assembly has been rebuilt. Custom lens cell, custom tube, baffling. Moonlite 2.5" focuser and a Stellarvue 2.5" field flattener. It used to have vignetting issues and a usable field of view of approximately 2.5 degrees horizontally. Now the field of view is pushing 4 degrees and stars are round right to the edges. And it takes awesome photos...
