Description

Between the Eastern and Western Veil is the "top" that connects them, which I see imaged less frequently.  I wanted another bright target for a night I knew I might not get through without clouds reducing the time available, so I chose to image this part of the Veil Nebula.  Clouds came in at around 2am ending the session, so it worked out well.  This was the final image taken during the longest continuous clear weather period I can remember: 8 nights in a row producing usable images.  Unfortunately it fell just after the full moon, but it was still a welcome change.
