The “Cocoon” nebula

While the clear nights were foused on imaging Mars, they also were a bit hazy and not that transparant. SQM value were at most 20,15.

Nevertheless the 76EDPH was running on the HEQ5 to capture IC5146 or the ‘Cocoon’ nebula in the constellation Swan. Some 90 shots of 5 minutes with the ASI2600MC Pro were taken, Gain 100 and Bias, Darks applied. Click on the picture to enlarge.

IC1396

One of my favorite objects, IC1396 in Cepheus, or also called the “Elephant Trunc”, imaged from Castellet-en-Luberon under a beautifull SQM 21.30 sky, with crickets, shooting stars.
