Hi everyone,

Well - a major marathon processing session from Noel (lots of blood sweat and tears, plus a lack of sleep) has produced the Summer 2007 mega-project.

Image

The Parker/Carboni deep-sky imaging factory present to you the whole of the Veil nebula in Cygnus - a beautiful supernova remnant. The field of view on this one is approximately 3.5 by 3 degrees, with a total exposure time of 32 hours and a similar amount of image processing time.

Enjoy!
Greg & Noel

Hi Greg,

I'll never get tired of saying "Wow, fantastic shot" for as long as you care to share so here you go - "Wow, fantastic shot". Congratulations to both you and Noel. Good to see he doesn't spend all of his time browsing the Pro Photo forum. :P

Bob.

What a fantastic shot, again. Love your astro-efforts. May i ask how many hours you put into this every day?

Im kind of curious how that image would look if the stars (somehow) was reduced to some moderate degree.
