I am late to the veil nebula party but I haven't been imaging much due to work lately :) . I was just collecting data each night regardless of moon or not whenever it was clear and ended up with an 8 panel mosaic of The Veil.

The quality the skies when I acquired it was hit or miss. Some nights were really good but other nights were with moon or wind/clouds. Luckily, a 8 panel mosaic can hide a lot of imperfections :)

All things considered, I am happy with the image. It could be better from a nice dark site but from my backyard, this turned out quite decent!
