Description

The Veil Nebula is, most likely, my love at first sight when I started astrophotography one year ago. No surprise, I spent long time this year photographing it as best as I currently can and, while not completely happy with the result, I think is very acceptable. As far as I can see, it has good details and reveals part of the fainter nebula, which is not very usual to see.

I truly appreciate your constructive comments and so, feel free to let me have you opinion and let me know what do you think it could be improved.

Like I said, it is now one year I started AP and my first photo taken was the Bat Nebula, completed on Sep.6th 2020. It was my first "WOW" moment but looking back it makes me smile. But my point is that I am grateful to all AP community, including Astrobin community, for all the help and guidance provided. Without you all it would be possible to improve.

Cheers,
André
