Eastern Veil Nebula in Hydrogen Alpha Light

This is the first part of a bi-color Hydrogen Alpha & O III image of the Eastern Veil Nebula.  This is the Hydrogen Alpha data which I collected over two nights last week from my back yard in Vista CA, and from the San Diego Astronomy Association’s dark sky site at Tierra del Sol, CA.  This is a combination of 86 x 270 second images with the Stellarvue SVQ100 telescope and a ZWO ASI1600MM-C camera.  The camera gain was set to 200 with an offset of 50 and was cooled to -15C.  I hope to have the O III data within the next 2 weeks and will put together a color version.
