Not very much exposure for this target however the NPB filter did a good job and I got a decent result.

The Veil Nebula, also known as the Cygnus Loop, is a large, relatively faint supernova remnant in the constellation Cygnus. The source supernova exploded some 5000 to 8000 years ago, and the remnants have since expanded to cover a big area of 3x3 degrees. The distance to the nebula is not precisely known, with estimates ranging from 1400 to 2600 light-years.
