Veil Nebula - Tom Wideman


This week's StellarShot of the Veil Nebula was submitted to us by Tom Wideman. To "Own the Night" Tom used his SV70T Apo Refractor and SFFR-70APO. The contrast and color, seems to give it a 3D appearance. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Tom sent this information about the image:
Captured at the Okie-Tex Star Party 2019, this is a two-frame mosaic of the Veil Nebula, captured with my StellarVue SV70T with SFFR-70APO reducer flattener. Losmandy G-11 mount, ZWO ASI1600MM-COOL camera, Baader LRGB filters.
We want to thank Tom for submitting and letting us share with the Stellarvue family.
