Description

First time using an Oiii filter and read that the Veil Nebula would be a good object given its high content of oxygen (as well as hydrogen and sulfur) and even under full moon skies as was late on the 13th & early on the 14th of September. As do not have other filters with my DSLR, will take an RGB when the moon is not full and use the G & B of this image to replace the G & B of the RGB with the objective to improve the RGB overall and/or apply this as a luminance layer (if I correctly understand the process).

Canon 800D + Canon 200mm fix lens at f/3.2 - 20 subs x 240 seconds @ iso800. Calibrated and processed in Pixinsight with slight curve adjustments in Photoshop.

Surprised at how much nebulosity came through given the conditions and using a DSLR & DSLR lens.
