August 2012: another mosaic, now with the Eastern Veil Nebula

The fact is that before I attempted the Western Veil with a challenging 6-piece mosaic, I tried the technique with a fragment of the Eastern Veil (a 3-pieces mosaic) I began processing it, but as I then imaged the Western Veil, all my time went to processing the big one, and my Eastern remained waiting.

After having finished its processing, I must say that this object is remarkably spectacular. I’m also very happy overall with it, and the contrast between the nebula and the background.

As with the big mosaic, each piece of it contains 3 700-second subs through the H-alfa filter, and 3 400-second subs through the R, G and B filters.
