Western Veil Nebula

Western Veil Nebula (NGC 6960)

This Image of the Western Veil Nebula (NGC 6960) was captured at Kelling Heath in September 2015.  It’s around 2 hours of exposure with my modded Canon 1100D with my Starwave 102ED mounted on the HEQ5 and guided by my Lodestar via the Altair 10×60 finder guider.   Its about 2 hours of 5-minute subs, with darks, flats and bias frames.  All stacked in the last few days in MaximDL, and post-processed in Photoshop and Lightroom.  I did produce a version of this back in 2015, but was never happy with it.  This version is far better after using Maxim to stack and pre-process.
