Veil Nebula, NGC6992

Veil Nebula, NGC6992

Veil Nebula is supernova remnant in the constellation Cygunus. It was discoverd by Willian Herschel on 1784. It is difficult for observer to see visually. But if you use an OIII filter it allow observvers to see clearly. I took this picture, eastern part of Veil nebula, with the Takahashi Epsilon250 and STL11000M camera.
