Takahashi TSA-120 with Astro-Tech 2" Field Flattener on a Paramount MX. The camera is a Canon 60Da. Thirteen light frames were stacked with 8 darks, 900 seconds each at ISO 800, plus flats and dark flats. Processing was done in Photoshop.
The Eastern Veil Nebula is my favorite part of the Cygnus Loop and I have enjoyed observing it many times through a large dobsonian. This was my first attempt at imaging the Veil from a dark, remote site.
