The Veil nebula ( NGC6960) in Cygnus

The Veil nebula ( NGC6960) in Cygnus

NGC6960 is the western branch of the super nova remnant which also generated NGC6992/6995 of the previous picture. It is interesting to see how the blast of the super nova has cleared out the interstellar space from dust - the upper half of the pictures shows definitely more backgound stars than the lower half.
