Veil Nebula (Western) NGC6992

Recommended Posts

After a bit of photoshop jiggery pokery on the eggy stars, the pic didn't come out too badly. I cant wait till this target is higher and in a darker sky, as it is one of my favourite areas of the sky. A full size mosaic of the whole area is my goal for this year. Pickering's Triangle next though.

12 x 600secs QHY8 + CLS

Skywatcher Mak-Newt 190

Guiding with PHD + DSI Pro + TS OAG

Captured in Nebulosity2, processed with PS and Noels Tools. Stacked in DSS.

For some reason my FTP is playing up, so just a thumbnail for now.

Thanks for looking.

TJ

Looks great TJ, love that deep red colour. Great wispy detail without an Ha filter

Were the eggy stars tracking or optical errors?

Looks superb TJ. I like the Green wispy stuff on the northern edge of the remnant. Is that Oxygen traces perhaps. I have no Idea.

As Peter remarked, is it Mak. Newt. that it was intimated may have pinched optics, and if yes, were they?

Ron.:)

The full size image does display by the way.

hehe, Ron, the full size is 3 times the size :)

Martin, it's an optical error, I have adjusted a few things tonight and am grabbing a few shots now, but the wind is gusting 30mph and all the subs so far are wrecked.

I've done some 5 and 15 sec shots to see if the problem has gone or is reduced. The really odd thing, the stars in the bottom right of the frame looked to have a rotation effect on them, while the other parts of the image showed a uniform egg shape.

That's come out nicely Tim.

Glad you got your eggs sorted :)

6992 is top of my target list for the cygnus region this year after catching the bow shock with the 80mm last year. A TMB mosaic this time :D

Cheers

Tremendous. Really rich colour and a feeling of depth. Should be an astounding mosaic.

Pickering's triangle - ah yes. I first heard of this as 'Pickering's Triangular Wisp.' Now that's what you CALL a name! Go for it.
