One of my favorite parts of this image is the "faint outer shells" of the structure. I love the Veil Nebula and I've never tried a Mosaic. I only wished I started this earlier in the summer, my last frame of NGC6960 was sinking fast in the west in October. I was able to capture NGC6960 during the last quarter of the moon, an advantage using Orion?s Narrowband filters.
