The Veil Nebula is a cloud of heated and ionized gas and dust in the constellation Cygnus. The source supernova exploded some 5,000 to 8,000 years ago, and the remnants have since expanded to cover an area roughly 36 times the area of the full moon.

Although my camera has a large FOV, it cannot capture the entire nebula, but only a portion of it. Here is my image of the eastern section of the entire nebula. I took 26 images, each 30 sec. in length.
