Cocoon Nebula


Recommended Posts

Perfect clear night and 4 hours+ of imaging, but I'm not happy with it!!

Although it's mono (& Ha) it seems to lack definition and contrast. I spent quite a bit of time getting the focus as spot on as I could but stars still look a bit bloaty!

Then having to refocus for the adding of the Ha filter was a pain but I did it properly using Deneb to focus.

Maybe this adding of the reducer/flattener will help, we shall see!!

Anyway results are these, Cocoon in mono, Cocoon in Ha and IC63 in Ha.

All 300 sec exposures Mono x 6 Ha x 12 and IC63 Ha x 3 + Bias frames. No Darks
