Looks like it's Veil Nebula month. At this summer's Grand Canyon Star Party a friend and I were looking at Pickering's Triangle around midnight from the veranda of the North Rim Lodge through a 20" Obsession. I was so blown away by the detail in the background around Pickering's Triangle that I knew I had to image it soon. This is the result of that effort. Image was shot as a bi-color narrowband by mapping H-Alpha to the Red Channel, OIII to the blue channel and then H-Alpha and OIII were blended at a ratio of 50%/50% to generate a synthetic green channel. Processed entirely in PixInsight. A larger image can be seen at Astrobin.
Please note that voting will conclude on September 8th at Midnight EST.
