Cocoon Nebula IC5146

October 10 - 17, 2017

Thanks to the unusually long stretch of fine weather and fair seeing, I have had fun imaging from my observatory the past couple of months. This is a stack of 8 x 5-7 minute exposure, also a modified Canon 6D and IDAS LPS-V4 filter, shooting at ISO 6400. This object is a frequently underappreciated, complex emission and reflection nebula about 3,000 LY away in Cygnus, with much detail and color.
