Veil Nebula

Part of Veil Nebula
This is part of the Veil Nebula, in Cygnus

It is really much dimmer than this image would indicate.  I boosted the contrast and brightness a great deal.  The Veil Nebula is another chestnut image…

Update: Slightly better version of the photo, rotated to match the Wikipedia article on the Veil Nebula, which has some stunning images.  This is NGC6992, or the “Eastern Veil”. Weather permitting, I will try to image the rest of it soon.  (Cygnus is actually not quite in the best position for me now.)
