Veil Nebula Wide angle
I have imaged the veil nebula numerous times before but never tire of it.
Lots of issues throughout the night of imaging
1. There was a short in one of the power cords. Luckily I had another.
2. Battery fuse blew as a result of the above
3. Mount database got corrupted. So GOTOs would not work anymore. I think this was related to 1.
4. Camera stopped working because the one other battery was overloaded and it was low on power. Camera would keep recycling.
I finally finished debugging the problems, fixed the fuse and rewired everything.
By then it was around 1AM. Then I had to resync (old fashioned hand and eye pointing) since gotos would not work
But clouds came out at 3 AM so I only had about 90 mins of data in all.
This is a bicolor image of the Veil (Ha + OIII) using Steve Cannistra's method.
I like stars so I didnt do anything to reduce them.
