This image shows the Eastern Veil Nebula (NGC 6992) using a 92mm refractor and a thermoelectrically cooled ATIK 460EX monochrome camera coupled to a filter wheel containing 7nm H-a and 8.5nm O-III narrowband filters. I captured this image from my bright sky observing site over two nights with a total of 255 minutes of integration time.
