A Journey to the Veil Nebula in 4K

The hauntingly beautiful remnants of a supernova explosion that occurred over 5,000 years ago are what we call the Veil Nebula. At an estimated distance of roughly 2,000 light years, this image was taken with a CLS light pollution filter attached to my DSLR. Be sure to use an O-III filter to help view this faint object visually through a telescope.
