My first attempt at the Rosette Nebula. I shot this in bi-color (Ha/OIII) mostly because of time constraints, but I'd love to go back and spend some more time getting better data. It was also my first time out imaging since late last year and, as a result, I had to throw out many subs due to silly mistakes.
