Cocoon Nebula

Imaged from Soap Creek Valley
Corvallis, Oregon
Celestron 11" Edge-HD with the 0.7x reducer
WO 81-GT Guidscope with QHY 5L-II-C guide camera, PHD guiding.
Canon 6D Un-modded, ISO 3200, 180 sec exposures
Combined 7 light frames, no darks, and no flats

This was a test image to check for imaging problems.
Star shapes were good to the edge but
the light falloff was significant with this setup.
I will be adding the Celestron wide camera adapter to address the
light falloff in the future with the 0.7x reducer.
