Cocoon Nebula IC 5146

Posted on

The cocoon nebula is a reflection/emission nebula in the constellation of Cygnus the Swan. It is about 2500 lightyears away and about 12′ in size. It hosts a stellar nursery where star-formation is ongoing with hundreds of very young stars forming from the hydrogen gas in the area.

The data for this image was collected using the fully mobile setup in the summer holidays … a field test for being able to shoot from any location with the full equipment powered through a battery pack at night and recharged by solar panels during the day.
