NGC 6960 & NGC6974


Date:             September 2000

Location:       NCO Wilderness Site - Boon Michigan   

Equipment:   4" f6 refractor, G11, ST4, Taurus Tracker III  

Conditions:    Very Good - Clear and Dark 

Film:              Kodak Ektapress PJ400     

Exposure:      1 Hour

Comments:    The intention was to have all three parts of the veil nebula in the frame.  I did not guess the camera position correctly so I show the western part - NGC6960 with the bright star 52 Cygni and the central part - NGC6974 which is also known as "Pickering's Triangular Wisp"
