Annoyingly Flickr has decided that it is not going to supply the HTML BBCcode to post piccies anymore - so what exactly is the use of Flickr now?? Putting the usual img brackets around the above address doesn't seem to work - so if anyone knows what I'm meant to do please let me know :shock: :shock: :shock:

Anyway - here is a non-composite wide-field of the Cocoon region taken in the 1 clear hour (with a blazing Moon) that I had last night. Canon 5D MkII, Canon 200mm prime lens, f#4.5, 21 x 4-minute subs. I am falling in love with this setup.

Cocoon non-composite by cybermystic, on Flickr

Found out where I had gone wrong with Flickr. Basically don't click on their "New photo experience" - it isn't very useful.

Noel Carboni composited the Canon 5D MkII template with some earlier Hyperstar III data of the Cocoon region alone to give the following result:
