captured the Western Veil part 1 (Halifax)

The BGO robot imaged part of the Western Veil Nebula (NGC 6960, Caldwell 34) for me. A supernova remnant in Cygnus. One of the RASC Finest NGCs. This is a very large object that subtends 3 frames. Part of this run was done before an error occurred (likely clouds). Pity. I'd love to see the hydrogen...

RASC Finest diffuse nebula NGC 6960 luminance

Luminance only, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, Paint.NET. North is up; left is east.


This will be combined with part 2 and part 3.


Received all the data on the morning of 12 July.
