Cocoon Nebula & B168


Mark Griffith

Swindon, Wiltshire. UK

Skywatcher NEQ6 pro mount & Equinox 80mm refractor, Atik 383L+ camera, motorised filter wheel and Astronomik LRGB filters.

Concentrating on the dark nebula B168 so moved the cocoon nebula to the far edge of the image.

Collected 45 minutes of luminace data to highlight the dark nebula with the stars.

Didn’t use my hygrogen alpha filter as I wanted to keep the relection component of the cacoon nebula in my picture.

LRGB image with 180 minutes of data collected on a single night.
