I’ve been thinking about imaging the Rosette Nebula for over a year now, but never actually tried. We had some clear patches of sky on Boxing Day evening, and I decided to test the new mount on it, before I go home for the night. Well, this is the result from the 40-ish 2-minute subs. I’m happy. :)
