Veil and Trunk

Another attempt at the western portion of the Veil Nebula (NGC6960) using narrow band filters. The orientation of the camera is better than it was for the previous Veil images, so more of the nebula is visible. Some tracking problems remain, mostly in the Ha channel.

Western Portion of the Veil Nebula (NGC6960)

The usual equipment and about 2 hours worth of 5 minute subs for each channel.

Also, an preview of the Elephant Trunk portion of IC1396 using an Ha filter.

IC1396 - Detail showing the Elephant Trunk Nebula

About an hour and 20 minutes minutes worth of 5 minute subs. This needs a lot more time, as the original stack of images is quite noisy.
