Caldwell 19 Cocoon nebula


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Celestron c11 sct, skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount, Canon Eos 1100d self-modified and Astronomik CLS CCD clip filter.

Full moon in Taurus so imaged this nebula in Cygnus before the moon got in the way. My auto guiding was a bit out so had to use three minute exposures. Final image still contained some nice detail.

35 three minute light frames at iso1600. 20 dark, bias and flats. Deep sky Stacker and Gimp. Cropped to 2425 x 2085 pixels.
