This is my image of the Rosette Nebula taken a couple of nights ago. This nebula is around 5000ly from earth, and is a haven for new born stars. Whilst the cluster of stars is easily visible with binoculars, the nebula itself can only be viewed with long exposure photography.
This image is stacked using 12 subs, 21 dark frames, and 21 bias frames. Dew was a major issue being a hot humid night so I had to be quick. I managed to get some other targets in this night but they were all a bit "foggy". Time to by some dew heaters me thinks...
