The first time I saw the Veil was 25 years ago: Younger eyes, a good dark sky site and a 10" reflector combined to make the view a real jaw-dropper! Incredible detail was evident with direct vision and NO nebula filter. That taught me to be suspicious when folklore says an object is "invisible". Yes, the Veil can be seen easily with a 6" or smaller scope (even without a nebula filter) but the sky must be DARK. Light pollution is so pervasive these days that if you can see the Veil without a filter consider yourself fortunate. Ok, if you can see it with a filter, that's pretty good.

Only a great sight by means of a narrow-band filter (UHC for below and O-3 for above six inches of aperture). Using such a filter under a decent sky this certainly becomes a very intriguing object!

Nice to trace out with a large telescope, but the best view EVER was in Wyomings Red Desert using only 10X 50 Binocluars. Both halves set on a star studded background!! Superb!!! DMH, Kinsman, Ohio

Really needs a UHC or OIII filter to show it's stuff. Even under VERY dark skies, it's far more impressive and rife with detail with the use of one of these filters. Tremendous delicate wispsy detail w/ the filter, detecable, but not nearly as much fun without! I was astounded that, even under dark Texas Star Party skies, the Veil still looked way better with the filter.

Not very difficult. I routinely see it in a 8" f/4 reflector (40 mm Pentax EP) with UHC filter without difficulty under not so good skies (I live close to a major airport) Also not difficult in my 120mm f/5 rich field refractor with the same EP/filter combination. Amazing view, filling the whole field. With 26 mm EP one can see nice filaments in the eastern part.

Veil Nebula
Needs DARK clear skies, and very low power. This is a very large object, so don't expect to see all of it at the same time. I've seen the brighter parts of it, from dark desert skies with a 4" f/10 reflector, using a 20mm Erfle.

Tried over and over to find it in my 8"SCT but no luck.Anyone out there help?Starting to think it's a conspiracy between deepsky observers!!!
