The Veil Nebula is an extensive network of filamentary nebulosity in Cygnus and is the result of a super nova exposion. The entire complex (with various NGC designations) covers appoximately 6 full moons! This particular image is only 20 minutes in total exposure, hence the lower signal, but shows very good separation of colors (somewhat overly saturated to highlight the H9C's capabilities).
