The open cluster NGC 2244 and the surrounding nebula.
After a longer period of thick, dense clouds I finally could use one of the few cloudless nights to take this picture.
Apart from the rosette nebula you can find the faint nebula Sh2-282 on the right side as well as the open cluster Do24 underneath it on the very right side.
