About this image

When there's nothing to do and it's cloudy. I like to see what I have missed, processing wise on this computer.

And guess what. I found some images of the Cocoon Nebula (IC 5146) that I took back in 2017.

I have no details available except it is Ha and probably shot with 600-second subs.

Processed in Startools and finished off in CS5. I used AstroFlat Pro to clean up the background plus Astronomy Tools Space Noise Reduction.
