Description

I tried to take a picture of the complete veil nebula with my little TSAPO65/420mm. The image was taken from a very light polluted area near Frankfurt am Main (a.k.a my balcony). This was the hardest processing task so far, but very suitable to learn PI ;)
Maybe i will try to make a mosaik of this very nice target from a really dark side in future...
