The Veil Nebula is a large supernova remnant in the constellation of Cygnus. This third and final, extended detail, single panel rendition is from a full colour camera, the SIGMA fp L. It shows the West (lower right, NGC 6960) and Eastern Veil (left, NGC 6995) and Pickering’s Triangle (top right, NGC 6979). The supernova, which exploded between 10,000 and 20,000 years ago, would have been visible during the day. The remnants have since expanded to cover an area of the sky roughly 3 degrees in diameter. A recent determination based on direct astrometric measurements has placed the complex as 2400 ly from Earth. Having been taken with a full colour camera, a subtly different and broader colour spectrum and colour transition can be achieved, making this a very interesting alternative to the narrowband images taken with the monochrome SIGMA fp L.
