Description

Hi all, this is my first picture since a while, taken with my new setup. It's the Western Veil NGC 6960 and in the framing I tried to put in a bit op the Pickering's Triangle. In the left corner you can see it's tail. These are in total 61 subs from 300 seconds each, 32 Ha and 29 OIII.

Description: I darkened the background a bit more and tried to put more contrast in de nebula. Also I was looking for a nice way to present the picture. Add frame and some data of image.
