Cocoon Nebula

Here's another image I did at the 2009 Eldorado Star Party in Eldorado, TX. The Cocoon Nebula seems to be connected to a trail of dark nebula that hides from us stars in the Milky Way arm. Click here to see a larger uncropped version with details.

This is an HaLRGB image. I added the Ha data to the red channel in PhotoShop to enhance what is a rather faint nebula.
