Cygnus Loop Supernova Remnant in LRGB
Cygnus Loop - June, 2021

I was told that the Eastern (NGC6992) and Western (NGC 6960) Veils, and Pickerings Triangle were remnants of a supernova. I struggled to visualize how these the "very different shapes" could have resulted from a super-nova explosion, as they simply didn't fit a radial patter. I decided to solve this mystery with my telescope and camera.
Using my refractor, I wanted to capture all three in one frame, first using Broadband, LRGB filters.
This image reveals the beautiful star pattern in this area of the sky, but this star pattern is almost too distracting in solving the mystery.
The nebulosity does show an intricate interweaving of red and green/blue nebulosity.
