Description

Still having lots of fun with the QHY247C (third image). This is a widefield of the Cocoon nebula. I had earlier imaged this target with my C925 in narrowband but had done a terrible job and I also wanted to do a widefield that would capture the dark snake like nebula (Barnard 168) trailing the rose-like emission/reflection nebula.
