NGC 6960 - The Witch's Broom Nebula
6960, also called the Witches Broom Nebula, is located in the
constellation Cygnus and is located in the western part of the
Veil Nebula complex. The entire Veil Nebula complex spans 3 x 3 degrees of the sky or approximately 6 times the diameter of a full moon. The Veil
Nebula complex is the remnant of a supernova explosion that occurred
about 8 to 10 thousand years ago. This happens to be the official first
image with my new homemade astrograph and QSI 583wsg imager.
Date & Location: October 8th, 2010, Fort Mckavett, Texas.
