IC 5146

Recommended Posts

The Cocoon nebula is a stellar nursery, with its delicate fabric of glowing Hydrogen gas torn apart by the solar wind of newly born Suns.

Also known as Caldwell 19. IC 5146 is a good imaging target for anybody who wishes to point there "imaging" tool of choice in this area.

I shot this version in September 2017. I use an Atik 428ex CCD with an Atik EFW II. All this hangs of my Altair Wave series 115 EDT. This rides on top of my Losmandy G11.
