Ge­orges says: “The Veil Ne­bula is a cloud of heated and ionised gas in Cygnus. It con­sti­tutes the vis­i­ble por­tion of the Cygnus Loop, a large but rel­a­tively faint su­per­nova rem­nant. The Veil Ne­bula is a spec­tac­u­lar ob­ject in the sum­mer sky. I chose this part be­cause the field of my cam­era can­not cap­ture all of the ne­bula.”

Equip­ment: SBIG STX 16803 CCD cam­era, Astrosib 14-inch RitcheyChr­é­tien, Astro-Physics 1600 Go-To mount.
