The East Veil Nebula, in the constellation Cygnus.

As autumn approaches here in the Colorado mountains, the number of clear evenings gradually increases. Such was last evening, when I was able to set up to capture the East Veil Nebula (NGC 6992) in the constellation Cygnus. I was able to collect 116 good 3-minute subs, plus the usual calibration frames (darks, flats, dark flats, and bias frames), and process the result using PixInsight and Affinity Photo. Subs were captured using an ASI533MC Pro camera with L-Extreme filter through a Sky-Watcher Esprit 100 apo refractor on an iOptron GEM45 mount. I’m decently pleased with the result.
