Picture of the Week

Picture of the Week this time is the whole of the Veil nebula in Cygnus. Why is this one a landmark image for the New Forest Observatory? Well this is a composite of ALL the data I have collected on the Veil nebula over many years. So this image includes Hyperstar, Sky90, and 200mm lens (with Optolong L-Enhance filter) data – all combined, using Registar, to give this final result. From my current location I don’t think adding more data (of less than 10s of hours duration) is going to improve this one radically – I am therefore well into the region of diminishing returns. That being the case I can say that for me at least, in this location, the Veil nebula is now well and truly “done”.
