Veil nebula with the Canon 200mm prime lens and the Canon 5D MkII un-modified DSLR

Only 4 x 10-minute subs at ISO 800 from last night – but – I was amazed at how bright the blue-green parts of the Veil came out (and not at all surprised at the lack of red 🙁 )

The whole of the Veil nebula easily covered and a nice open cluster NGC6940 thrown in as well.

AS I mentioned a while back, and this image confirms it, it has got to be worth putting an OIII filter on the front, going for much deeper subs, and using the massive FOV of this combo to scan for planetaries.
