The “Rosette” Nebula

Picture saved with settings embedded.

Or bigger:

Large Rosette

Taken last night this is the Rosette nebula in the constellation Monoceros.  It is a total exposure of 2h 20mins using Bizibilder’s newly modified camera.  The modification was to remove the cameras normal filter that blocks the red end of the spectrum (all digital cameras have this filter) as many astronomical objects emit light within these wavelengths.  Now Bizibilder can capture the true colours of these so-called “emission nebulae”.
