About this image

Going through my archive of RAW images (looking to save a few Gbyte) I came across some images of the Rosette Nebula taken back in March but had remained unprocessed.  The use of an unmodified DSLR probably didn't help on this target and I could have done with some more data to make dragging the nebula out of the noise a little easier.  Stacked using DSS and processed using IRIS.
