This is bicolour rendition of NGC 2237, The Rosette Nebula using narrowband data; 15 x 1200s each of Ha and [OIII].

I normally go for more muted colours when I process my narrowband data but I really like the vibrant scheme on this target – the yellow / gold really make the hydrogen-alpha regions look dynamic.
