This deep image of the Veil Nebula was captured using narrowband filters to highlight the intricate filaments of the shockwave travelling through space. The resulting colors and details were from a proprietary palette- by mapping the data from the filters to specific places on the electromagnetic spectrum, a vibrant image is born with vastly more detail than possible using a point-and shoot camera. This object is aver 6x the width of the full moon in the sky, and 110 light years wide!

The size indicated is the "leaf size", which will include a 1/2" white border for handling and framing.
