NGC6960 – Veil Nebula

20140727_NGC6960_Veil_nebula_mtsalkidis

Just found some data from the early tries in astrophotography from the summer of 2014 and gave them a go.
A lot of comma on the edges since I didn’t have an FFR at the time.
The image was captured with a Canon 350D with IR mod (filter removal). Halos around the stars are due to UHC-S filter.
