Here's another remote shot from Arizona. Probably one of the better ones of these that I've done. This is the Cocoon nebula, IC 5146 in Cygnus.

fantastic shot - love the colours and the subject. probably some more time on this may have helped in the signal department - the noise in the dust is apparent - but its 1000% better than i have!!! (which is nothing) can you do a repro but not push it as much just to see the difference in noise?

Thanks David. I might try to get a few more RGB subs and then do a repro. I think 400 minutes of Ha should be more than enough.

Thanks Mike. As it turned out I did get some extra red and green. Haven't processed it yet.

Beautiful. I like the balance between the nebula, dark dust, and stars :)
