Rosette Nebula
Observing location
Whirlpool Observatory SK11
Pentacon 200 mm Telephoto lens
Canon (modified) 1000D
Losmandy G11 Gemini L4
60 x 180 seconds

This picture was captured during Thursday evening, between 19:30hrs and 22:30hrs. It is the famous Rosette nebula in Monoceros.

This is  a close up, of a much wider field, that has been taken with a vintage m42 threaded Pentacon 200 mm lens, attached to my modified EOS 1000D.

Stacked in DSS. Then post processed in Star Tools Astro Art and PS CS5. In Adobe I separated out the RGB channels, and saved each one as R - G - B. I then combined these to make a true RGB picture. That had the correct colour balance.

I hope you like the result.
