An Hour of the Veil

I took this several nights back. It is an hour total exposure time, with 8 minute subexposures. All shot at ISO 1600 using my CAnon 300D and my Orion 100mm F6 achromatic refractor. This region is known as the " Witch's Broom" or the "Finger of God" because of it's visual resemblance. It is the remains of the pressure wave from a long past supernova explosion of a nearby star.
