Part of NGC 6992 - The Veil Nebula (Eastern Loop)

Bellwood, PA USA

Part of NGC 6992. Shot using a Meade LX200 10" f/6.3 telescope at approx. f/4.7 using a SBIG ST-2000XM with a color filter wheel (CFW8a). 4 x 5 minutes luminance at 2x2 binned. 1 x 5 minutes each RGB channel at 3x3 binned. Acquired using CCDOps. Dark frame and flat fields applied. Adjusted histogram and touched up in Adobe Photoshop 6.0. Self guided by the SBIG ST-2000XM imager. I left the brightness up some to show fainter parts of the nebula.
