Description

This is the first section of a project to render the Rosette in SHO; I did a quasi-SHO on an off-centered FOV last year weaving H-beta data into the mix. This image is a three hour integration. I think I want to get 6 hours per filter for the project, so much more to do. Target is available from my observatory, over the tree, now [almost December] at my latitude of 39°N starting around 23:30; it's an early, early morning effort. I will be swapping in a different scope pretty soon, so want to get this project completed before then.
