Description

Widefield image of IC 5146, the Cocoon Nebula.
The Cocoon Nebula (IC 5146) is a reflection/emission nebula located approximately 2,500 light years away in the constellation Cygnus. 
 The western part of the nebula is intersected by a dark lane that winds around the young cluster. The dark nebula is catalogued as Barnard 168 (B168). It stretches from the Cocoon Nebula in the direction of the bright open cluster Messier 39.
This image is acquired with the Takahashi FSQ-106ED refractor and FLI PL16803 camera from Telescope Live in IC Astronomy Observatory, Oria, Spain.
