Description: Central part of Eastern Veil Nebula. It's unbelievable how much details can be seen with an O-III filter! And this is only a small part of the whole nebula. There are several thin fibers in the nebula. It's difficult to place them all on the accurate places because averted vision and sweeping shows more and more faint details. The best O-III object.
