caught some of the West Veil (Halifax)

Wasn't expecting that!

While the skies were clear on the east coast and I was anticipating double star image requests to be completed, the BGO Robotic Telescope sent a message about TYC 2687-0782-1. It was actually the ID job number, 11874, that caught my eye. It was from my Veil project. Ah. The Moon had not yet risen enough to exceed my "maxmoon" constraint. All right then!

Part of the West Veil aka NGC 6960. Southern portion.

Hydrogen-alpha, 60 seconds subexposures, 10 stacked shots. FITS Liberator, GIMP. North is up; left is east.

Oh my. Look at those tendrils drifting down. Looks like I need to add another row to the image mosaic...
