This is a sketch of the Veil Nebula I made while in Prescott AZ, with my RV-6 telescope. Of all the things I have seen, the Veil is one of the most intriguing of them all to me. The magnification is 39x, with a GSO 32mm Plossl. 1.3 degree field. Celestron UHC filter used. There were so many stars in the field that it would have taken me considerable time to sketch them all, but I got quite a bit in the final sketch shown here.
