Partial Eastern Veil Nebula My first attempt at the Veil. Even with the .63 focal reducer, the FOV of my LX200 8" is too tight for this subject. I guess I'll just have to get a small APO refractor for wide field... Frames: Hutech IDAS 2" HEUIB-II: 5x600" ISO320 Location: Mercey Hot Springs, Firebaugh, California, United States

Astronomy Quote of the Day

“The view of the Earth from the Moon fascinated me -- a small disk, 240,000 miles away... Raging nationalistic interests, famines, wars, pestilence don't show from that distance.” Frank Borman, Commander of Apollo 8
