NGC 6992, the Eastern Veil Nebula is a large supernova remnant in the constellation Cygnus.

The image below shows the Veil Nebula using a one-shot-color camera and a duo-narrowband filter. This filter collects light in both h-alpha and OIII simultaneously in a single exposure.

The wispy filaments of the Eastern Veil Nebula are a part of a larger overall network of nebulae in this area of the sky, called the Cygnus Loop. The Western Veil Nebula is equally as stunning as this target.

The image above was captured from my light polluted backyard (Bortle Class 7) . A photo like this from home seemed impossible to me when I first began taking deep sky astrophotography images from my backyard.

This photo is a testament to the power of filters when imaging under heavily light polluted skies.
