My latest image (as of summer 2023) of the Veil Nebula, a supernova remnant.
The stars over moonlit trees next to the North Fork of the Skykomish River in Index, WA.

The Cygnus Loop is a massive supernova remnant that emits radiation across the full electromagnetic spectrum. The broadband or visible portion is often classified as separate nebulae like NGC6960 ('The Veil Nebula' or the 'Witch's broom') and NGC6962. This is a wide field shot that captures the entire loop over 2 hours of exposure with a narrowband filter.
In the Southern Cross (or Cygnus) where a star no longer glows, Its energy loans the colorful bones that filaments expose / Threads of red and strands of green entangle in their space, The expanding shell of the star that fell and is no longer in its place. The Witch's Broom as some presume is just part of a bigger tale / Of Cirrus clouds, Pickering's Triangle and the Eastern and Western Veil. In space it's stranded the filaments expanded and twisted around the core / That attracts our gaze as we trace the maze, both amazed and grateful yet more.
The Cygnus Loop is a massive structure of supercharged gas expanding rapidly from the center of a supernova in the distant past. This image captures the Veil Nebula or Witch's broom end and used a narrowband filter to enhance the detail.
This beautiful region is full of stars and some of the most bright and beautiful nebulae including The Cygnus Loop (Veil Nebula), the North America Nebula, the Crescent Nebula and the Tulip Nebula.
This beautiful nebula is part of a supernova remnant that spans a large field of view.
A brilliant star caps the veil in this delicate and beautiful nebula.
