Mosaic of NGC6992, NGC6995 & IC1340 (Eastern part of Veil Nebula) in Cygnus

(RA 20h 56.4m , Dec. +3143', 72 x 8 arcmin.)

This is the brightest region of Veil Nebula supernova remnant. It is visible in 10X50 binoculars (under dark sky) about 3 SE of e Cygni (see finder chart below).

The above mosaic was assembled from 4 tiles made of 88 images taken on September 1, 1999 from Sooke, B.C. with Celestron Ultima 8 f3.0 SCT and Cookbook 245 LDC CCD camera. Each tile is composed of white integrations (10 x 60 sec.) as well as cyan, magents and yellow-filtered exposures (4 x 60 sec. each) combined using Multi245 and QColor software from Richard Berry. Mosaic was then assembled using Corel PhotoPaint 8.
