Job 9:9-10
9 He is the Maker of the Bear and Orion,
the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.

Rosette Nebula 3/11/15

Another object I've imaged before.  I'm repeating these so that I have a record of improvements I've made in the different objects as I learn more about capturing and processing these images.  The Rosette Nebula,  SH2-275 or Caldwell 49 is a hydrogen rich region in the constellation  Monoceros.   Monoceros is located one constellation east of Orion.

This is a big object, over 1 degree in diameter.  It almost will not fit in the field of view of a 700mm focal length telescope imaged by an APS-C crop sensor DSLR.
