Southern tip of eastern Veil Nebula. This complex field of nebulosity contains parts of NGC 6995 and IC 1340 where the latter is in the leading role. There are several brighter and fibrous areas all around the field. The west loop is little bit fainter but sweeping and averted vision helps a lot. No doubt, this is my favorite field in the autumn sky.
