Eastern Arc of the Veil Nebula (AKA Network Nebula)

I like to call this the eastern arc of the Veil Nebula but others know it as the Network nebula. This shot is on slide film, showing the full 35mm frame. Whereas digital will capture many different colors on this object, all I could ever get with film was red. This image sorely needs additional processing, including vignetting reduction.

_Imager: Olympus OM-1, Elite Chrome 200 35mm slide film pushed one stop, scanned at 4,032 x 2,688 (10.8 MP). _Scope: Meade MTS-SN6 6-inch f/5 Schmidt-Newtonian. _Exposure: Single, 30 minutes. _Guider: Manually guided with Lumicon 2-inch Newtonian Easy-Guider. _Date: Aug 8, 2002. _Location: Near Ayton, Ontario, Canada.
