Western Veil (The Witch's Broom) - Unmodded DSLR Quickie

This is the Western part of the Veil Nebula (known as the Witch's Broom), a supernova remnant in the constellation of Cygnus. This image was taken on Sunday 10th November 2013). The seeing wasn't too great due to the jet stream, and I was battling the moon which was nearly half full and within 45 degrees of the target at a guess. This is an unmodified DSLR version, hence the relative lack of Red/Ha in the nebula.
