New image again from the Autonomous Robotic Telescope on Mount Teide.  As The Open University have been having problems with the COAST Telescope and mount,  access has been given to the PIRATE Telescope - a 17" PlaneWave CDK17 telescope. One 120 second exposure using a FLI PL16803 CCD detector.   Remotely via my laptop, I pointed all this fantastic kit at the Western Veil and obtained this image using nebula filters.  I remember the first time I saw this classic object through Olly's big dob  and a widefield eyepiece at Les Granges - blew my socks off! :happy7:
