Late season Veil Nebula

I really still consider myself a DSLR beginner, but since this came out ok and I plan to add more subs, I thought I'd share now

Here's 2 nights worth of 1 hr:

360s x 5 @ ISO 1600
600s x 3 @ ISO 800
1hr total

Imaged: Meade OTA
6" Schmidt-Newt f/5
Guided: 4" Skywatcher
Mount: Celestron CGE

Guided, Unmoded
LPS-P2-FF Filter, Darks
& WB Flats applied

Manually dithered every 3 or so subs.

Hope you enjoy as much as I did seeing this for the 1st time (visually and AP-wise!)

I've always loved facts, provable facts of nature and things concerning science.  

Over time, I found that most facts are mostly reference and it was the creation of and discovery of new things that intrigued me.

"A good friend once told me you are our memory
without them we equal nothing
And all I can see is the place I wanna be
Suddenly my life was so free
Leaves at my feet, blown to the ground
their echoes are reaching my ears
Nights coming fast, suns going down" - A7x
