Last night I managed to grab the frame to the right of the Cocoon nebula – whilst at the same time getting some ultra-wide-fields of the Perseids using the Canon 5D MkII, 15mm fish-eye lens and AstroTrac. Anyway – I quickly bolted the Cocoon right hand frame on and what do I find? In order to get all the dark nebulosity in the region I also need the two frames off the top and bottom as well!! Talk about a go-deeper job. Well at least we all know what this summer’s mega-project will be.
