imaged southern structure (Halifax)

I thought it might... The BGO robot imaged targets for me. Starting with the third panel (of three) for a mosaic of the Western Veil Nebula. Chopped on the bottom; maybe I need to reframe... [ed: Or the pointing was off—the requested target star is not centred in the image.]

This is the southern-most portion of the supernova remnant NGC 6960 (Caldwell 34). One of the RASC Finest NGCs. It really stands out in the doubly ionized oxygen (O-III) imagery.

RASC Finest southern portion of the West Veil Nebula O-III

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

This will be combined with part 1 and part 2.
