My second attempt at the Rosette nebula. My friend Gary let me know on my last attempt that the red signal was quite strong so I've tried for a more balanced histogram this time (although the red still dominates). I welcome any critiques on how I might improve the image quality and reduce the noise. I recently purchased Pixinsight and am planning on editing all future images there.
