The Heart of the Rosette Nebula. I ideally wanted to get equal amounts of data, however due to the nebula slowly disappearing behind my house I had to reduce some data. This is my first attempt at narrowband imaging and I’m pretty pleased with the result achieved. Total time of data gathered is 2hr 35min.
