I'm so pleased to be able to capture this object, it is one of the most beautiful nebulas in the night sky, ok there are loads of others, but that's why we are astronomers, we love them all.. 

I go to Kelling Heath primarily for visual observation, the imaging is something of a secondary objective that I don't let get in the way of the visual observations.  

I also viewed the Eastern and Western Veil through my 12" f4 Dob without any filters, something impossible at home (SE London) 

The weather was a bit patchy for imaging so I was happy to get this image.
