IC 5146, the Cocoon Nebula in Cygnus, is always a challenge from my back yard. Even with good transparency, it takes quite a bit to tease it out above my sky glow, but always worth the effort. This is by far the best result I’ve gotten so far and I particularly like how the dark nebula (Barnard 168) came out. I didn’t realize until after I processed this image that I also caught a tiny bit of the reflection nebula just off to the right of the Cocoon.
