Description

During 3 nights I was swapping the target between the Pacman and Rosette. Rosette is coming very low here. Also it is hanging between two roofs for 2-3h. I had limited time to aquire this data.
Because of FWHM and some focus issues I combined the data of around 5h together. 4h went to the digital dumpster. Here is the result.
The 5000 lightyears distant nebula is great. No wonder it is a favorable target for so many imagers.
Greetings to the neighbours in the Perseus arm of the Milky Way ! I'm pretty sure, we will see us again.
