ZWO ASi120mm mini guide camera and 30mm guide scope
ZWO ASIAIR Pro connected to my home network and control through my Lenovo tablet.

Very nice image of one of my favorite objects I like to view with my 16" dob and an 0111 filter plus a wide angle low power eyepiece.
Kudos for actually noting the scope used to image the object, unlike many of the posters in the "image of the day"...

This is a huge object that filled the scope/cameras view.  Only a very small crop to clean up the edges of the image.   

Imaging the Western Veil now...

Thank you
