Veil Complex in a funky HST

Here is the finished Veil complex image from the data collected this summer. This includes 6 hours and 20 minutes of HA and 6 hoursand 30 minutes of OIII and SII data. It's processed in an adaptation of Bob Franke's color manipulation of the HST palette. The purists probably won't like this much but I think it came out pretty cool.

Here it is:

Veil Complex in narrowband

The Veil complex consists of NGC 6960, NGC 6992, NGC 6995, NGC6975, NGC 6979, and Pickering's Triangle. It is a large but faint supernova remnant.

Thanks for looking.
