Cocoon Nebula - SVX180T

Posted by Tony Hallas on 29th Aug 2023

Tony Hallas took this incredible shot of the "Cocoon Nebula" (IC 5146) in Cygnus using his SVX180T.

This reflection, emission nebula is located near the naked-eye star Pi Cygni, the open cluster NGC 7209 and bright open cluster M39. Formed 100,000 years ago, this nebula is 4,000 lightyears away and 15 lightyears across.
