This is not the brightest section of the Veil, but was very clearly visible (even 
without my OIII filter which was languishing at home). The southern section of
NGC 6960 was drawn, stretching away from 52 Cyg. The nebula swayed gently
across the field like a flattened and inverted integral sign. Lies in an extremely
rich field of Milky Way stars.
