(IAAC) October 18/19, 80mm f/11 refr. 48x, Veil Nebula (NGC6960)



Veil Nebula -- Well, this was a test at 48x. The part NGC 6960 near 52 Cygni
               was "just" seen at 48x with a bit of averted vision, I
               could only see the bottom part.
               The larger part NGC 6992 was seen without averted vision but
               still was faint, only the brightest part was noticed to
               the eye.
Clear skies...
