August 2016: … and now, the Eastern part

Yes, while testing my new equipment I imaged the Eastern Veil, one of my favorite objects in the summer sky.

With my “traditional” setup (the 8″ LX200), this object needed a 3-piece mosaic to be framed inside the field. But now, with the 80mm TS refractor and its huge photographic field, the Veil simply floats in the middle of the frame surrounded with thousands of Milky Way stars.
