Starless Caldwell 49 aka the Rosette Nebula! 🤩 The few stars of NGC2244 I let in as they are closely associated to this nebulosity and formed from its matter.
The image is based on 4:40 hrs of data, collected over two sessions with a RedCat 51 and ASI 294 MC Pro. After calibration and integration in Astro Pixel Processor, the starless picture was created with StarNet++ and finished in Photoshop (with a little Corel Photo-Paint).
