The Veil Nebula is a supernova remmnant found in the constellation Cygnus.
The bright star in the foreground is not part of the nebula, but it makes for a striking image

This image was taken with a 60Da DSLR and an NP101is refractor from a semi-dark site. It was one of my first attampts at long exposure guided images from a short focal length APO refractor.

There isn't enough integration time for a lot of details and the stars are a bit overdone. But it does show the nebula. Which was a lot better than my prior failed attempts. So, as an early effort, it was encouraging.
