Description

My daughter will be turning 1 year old in May! It’s crazy how time flies when you’re chasing little ones all over the place! I wanted to give her something special and decided on a picture of the Rosette Nebula. Coming in at just under 8 hours of integration time spread over 2 nights, this was definitely a labor of love for my little girl (although my wife would argue that her “labor” of love was somewhat more substantial lol). I’m not sure she understands exactly what it is yet, but I think she likes it. Check out the attached photos and you’ll see what I mean! I’m hoping she’ll be just as excited when she unwraps it in 2 months
