This was my third try at the Cocoon over the past few years. I have always found this to be a challenging object (and continue to do so) - probably because I keep doing it at f/5 instead of f/2.8. I have attached a mid sized thumbnail of the latest effort and a full sized image with processing and exposure details can be accessed at:
