The Western Veil Nebula

NGC 6960 - The Western Veil Nebula or Witches Broom Nebula in Cygnus

 

I've always found the Western Veil Nebula to be a difficult deep sky object to process. I ran SEVERAL iterations of star minimizing actions on this one - and really tried to avoid "chewing" into the sinewy veil nebula in the process.

 

This was captured using my Explore Scientific ED 102 Refractor with the ZWO ASI294MC Pro OSC camera. I put some serious mileage on that camera last summer, almost always with the STC Astro Duo-Narrowband filter in front.
