Description

At first, I wanted to photograph the Heart and Soul Nebula. But since the DSO was too high up at the Zenith, it was inconvenient to shoot. So I decided to shoot the Rosette Nebula again. This time with my William Optics Redcat 51 scope, instead of my tamron lens I used to shoot with.

Bortle Class 3 Location.
