The Veil
I'm still not happy with it, but at least you can see it, which is more than you can do in the average astromomer's telescope. This is the combination of a 60 and 90 minute (on PPF 400) and a 30 minute (on hypered Tech Pan) shots, all taken over the last couple of years. This one's a tough nut to crack. The bright star is 52 Cygni. This picture is like looking at part of a smoke ring, and this is just the western part. The best guess is that it's about 1500 light years away. 30-40,000 years ago a star exploded and this is part of what's left, expanding outward at a decreasing rate. It is in the constellation Cygnus which lies in the Milky Way
