Used the star SAO 114042 as an initial slew for framing; the star is visually on the fringe of the Rosette Nebula, the central portion of which is visible upper right. Original FOV was later cropped somewhat and rotated 90°. This was my first attempt at using H-beta instead of SII in the Hubble palette, and the first time I was successfully able to pull out some blues and cyan.
