SVX080T-3SV - IC5146

Posted by Mike Gibbs on 7th Nov 2023

Mike Gibbs took this incredible image of the "Cocoon Nebula" (IC5146) in Cygnus using his SVX080T-3SV. This reflection/emission nebula is 4,000 light-years away from Earth and spans 15 light-years across. In the dark lane that trails off to the side of this nebula is BD +46 3474, a B1 star estimated to be over 14 times the mass of the Sun.
