The Rosette Nebula is one of the largest, most beautiful and also most popular target for amateur astrophotographers. Yet, it took us 4+ years before attempting it ourselves. The Rosette Nebula is located in the constellation of the unicorn: Monoceros. It is also pretty close to the brightest star in the night sky, Sirius!
