The Rosette Nebula

Picture saved with settings embedded.

Bizibilder’s first attempt at a Nebula (gas cloud) using his DSLR camera (these objects are very red and a normal DSLR has a filter to cut these wavelengths out!!).  Anyway, he had a go and managed this in 58 minutes of exposure.  This object is HUGE – the full moon would easily fit into the central ”dark” area.  You can see some dark dust clouds in the lower part of the nebula.
