IC5146 Cocoon nebula


Recommended Posts



Results so far on the Cocoon nebula. Taken over a few nights as an L(HaR)GB image where the Ha has been added to the red channel.


Total exposure time so far is about 4.5 hours. Will be adding to this to try and bring more out of the dusty envelope.


Scope: Altair RC8, Camera: Atik 383L mono, Filters: Baader &nm Ha and their LRGB filter set. Mount: Avalon Linear Fast Reverse.

Wow thanks for the comments.

I now have a bit more data from last night which has muted the colours (correction-I've muted the colours):
