Eastern portion of the Veil Nebula imaged with narrowband filters. With  these filters, only light wavelengths of ionized Hydrogen and ionized Oxygen are allowed to pass. This accentuates the nebulosity of the object while blocking unwanted signals from other sources..

120 minutes of exposure time through Hydrogen-Alpha and OIII filters.

Five minute sub-frames.



Image acquired using Apogee A8050 camera with Astrotech AT10-RC astrograph.
