Hi everyone,

I just finished an image of the Veil and some of the surrounding nebulosity and wanted to share it. I found the area in the lower left corner intriguing, particulary the wispy strands of gas at the shock wave interface.

The image can be seen at:

Beautiful. I've had trouble with stars when combining RGB with H-alpha. You've done a great job.

Thanks everyone for your kind words. This was a very enjoyable project. My first attempt with Ha and I was amazed at the signal that shows up with these narrow band filters.

Take care,
Kent
