Veil Nebula East (NGC6992) in H alpha

A session where I had perfect pinpoint focus was spoiled by occasional light haze illuminated by a 3/4 moon, which badly affected the contrast in 3 or 4 images. Some other night.....

my back yard; August 8, 2011; seeing good, transparency fair to poor. Parsec 8300M with H-alpha filter (10x1000s) on TV85 at f/5.6; guided.
