Description

It's been a "veil" since I first aimed at this target in total with the WO GTF 81 and the Canon 6D resulting in a field of view of around 2,26 Degrees.



With the Canon 70Da an the WO GTF 81 I achieve a field of view of approx. 1,4 degrees as is suitable only for partial shots of the Veil Nebula:



Tonight I got only one hour until high clouds started to roll in but that was enought to give the RedCat a first light. Also first in use was the Astronomik CLS CCD clipfilter for the Canon 70Da. For one hour of total integration I am very happy with the resulting field of view of 3,14 degrees as well as with the already fine nebual structures visible inbeteween the prominent parts of the object. The halo needs to be addressed in a second rund. The session was without dithering and only mount tracked.
