Another part of NGC6974. The other photo in this collection is centered just off to the left of this image. A seldom photographed part of the Veil Nebula complex, this nebula has hydrogen gas that glows from the radiation provided by nearby bright stars. This image is 2 hours and 10 minutes of exposure. Some high winds cut the imaging session short, so more luminance is needed to finish this image. This object was imaged October 18, 2011. Click on the image for a larger and more detailed view.
