Dec 5th, 2015 - Same night that I captured the horsehead nebula with my old modified Canon SL1, I slewed to Rosette Nebula (NGC 2244), it was getting dark and I only managed to capture 17subs, but all I could say is WOW, love the structure in this nebula, one day I'll be able to capture it with Narrowband filters and show it's real beauty.
