Description

Barry and I photographed the 'Witch's Broom' back in June & July 2018. On review, we felt that it would be worth extending the image to include the nearby Pickering’s triangle. This, therefore, is a two panel mosaic of the Witch’s Broom and Pickering’s Triangle imaged between 19 June and 6 August 2018.

The Veil Nebula complex is a supernova remnant located some 1,500 light years away in the constellation of Cygnus. It is believed that the original supernova would have been visible on Earth around 3,000 - 6,000 BC.

Data were captured from a remote imaging rig located in Spain jointly owned and operated by Barry Wilson and me.

Capture details are as follows:
Telescope: Takahashi FSQ 106
Camera: QSI 683 WSG
Filters: Astrodon 5nm
Mount: 10 Micron GM1000HPS
Ha: 41 x 1200s
OIII: 39 x 1200s

A total of 26.7 hours exposure.

Data Capture: Steve Milne & Barry Wilson
