NGC 6979

Pickering’s Triangle is a broom shaped area between the Eastern and Western Veil Nebula. It is a large area and I could not capture the entire area in one image even with a field of view of 2.5 x 1.8 degrees. The broom part is shown above but the handle part is shown on my Western Veil image.
