Description

The Cocoon Nebula Between the Clouds.

After many weeks with cloudy skies here in York a few hours of clear skies , Then down came the rain.

I'm happy to have captured The Cocoon Nebula between the clouds and a Bright shining Moon.

The seeing conditions not very good with the clouds and the moon , decided to take a chance before the rain.

This image was a rush job.
