Another Western Veil Nebula

Hi all

I have taken advantage of clear skies to again revisit a target that I first visited last year and after three attempts to process have settled on the image below.  Because of the rising moon and incoming poor weather I decided to bin the colour filters rather than revisit them several weeks later.  

This image is taken using a Meade 80mm APO, ASI 1600MM Pro, Baader filters, HEQ5 (rowan upgrade)l, ASI Air Pro and made up of 2h 45m of luminance, 1h 30m of RGB (Bin x 2), with  3h 15m of hydrogen alpha blended in.

magnificent!

I very much appreciate your comment.  Despite more than a year of imaging and processing I am still very much working out how to process the images themselves. I think capturing them is the easier process, although from what I see on these forums I am sure not everyone agrees.  

My first attempt at this target was using an achromatic scope and DSLR and the difference is stark but I am still learning how to process the final image.   I still have some way to go but I always appreciate feedback.
