Some really cool images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope:

Nice images but technology and processing has caught up to the Hubble and made this kind of stuff accessible to the masses.. If you look at Astrobin, a premier astro website, there are images better than this of this nebula taken by people in their backyard with $5000 worth of equipment.
All for the good. Fun stuff!

The Veil Nebula is a beautiful object. It will be interesting to see what the next generation of ground-based telescopes can image using adaptive optics.
