Cocoon Nebulae from Tiny Marsh


This was the first night for a long time. Everything setup easy and imaging was a breeze. the sky conditions were good with reasonable seeing. The moon was to rise at about 11pm so a short session prior to the moon rising was in order.

The image of the cocoon nebulae is a composite of 10 x 10 min exposures through the FLT110 with the AFRIV and ST8300C. The images were dark subtracted and stacked then further processed in Nebulosity and finally balanced in Photoshop.
