TMB 115 f7, Starlight Xpress SXVF H36,Paramount ME, 15 x 10 minute exposures unguided with a 12nm Ha filter
Description
The image shows the whole of the Rosette nebula in Ha which has helped bring out some of the detail, there was a full moon in the sky close to the area of sky where I was imaging and the brightness of the moon was so great that from where I live you couldn't see all of the stars in orion due to the moon light. I had originally planned on 20 x 10 minute unguided subs but cloud came in and ruined the remainder of the session.
