The Cocoon Nebula shot with a stock K3ii
Lens: TS 130/910mm Camera: K3ii Photo Location: My balcony ISO: 1600 Shutter Speed: Above 6s 
Posted By: Pete_XL, 09-03-2018, 07:45 AM

The Cocoon Nebula is embedded in dark dust clouds floating in a sea of stars in the constellaion Cygnus. The nebula is shining red because it contains hydrogen gas that is ionized by the radiation of nearby stars. The nebula is about 3000 lightyears away.



The image was made from 77 x 180 s ISO 1600 subs with my K3ii that is attached to a 910 mm telescope.

Excellent image, there's such a wide expanse of space, makes us realise how insignificant we really are!

Thanks for sharing
