Description

After already imaging the Rosette Nebula last year, I have always been wanting to do a better version of it.

The data was gathered in quite clear, moon-free nights and the result was visible in the integrated files. I was keen on keeping the details while processing this image, as I do not get those nights very often where I am at.

Like always, I was struggling with the right level of saturation and keeping some opacity to the nebula. I hope I managed to settle for the right levels.
