Wedge portion of Veil Nebula in narrow band

SII, Ha, OIII narrow band filters, Taken with a Meade f6.3 SCT focal reducer in a home made adaptor before my dedicated flat field lens was manufactured. The Meade had a lot of edge curvature and lousy stars on the sides too so cut off lots of the image. Still it is an interesting shot. You probably won't see them at this scale but the same image is printed at 17" x 24" on my wall...and you can find a few asteroids in it. My friend took the same picture on that night and he also captured the asteroids. They look like tiny brief streaks.
