Eastern Veil in light of an ionized oxygen

A two frame mosaic of the Eastern Veil Nebula was my first imaging project for the Autumn season 2016. For the colour image, I shot three emission lines, hydrogen alpha, Sulphur II and oxygen III. This new image shows the emission of the ionized oxygen alone.

Oxygen III emission can be seen as a blue colour
