Whilst I was waiting for NGC 2359 Thor's Helmet to come around the tree, I ran off 3x600s frames of NGC 2237, the Rosette Nebula, just to "kill time". The signal in this area was so strong that the result was rather pleasing in its own little way, so I have presented it here.
Of course, this is only part of the massive Rosette complex imaged here with my 200mm slr. It is always nice to compare images at different scales.
Captured in ArtemisCapture, calibrated in ImagetoolsCa, DDP in maxim, thuggery in photoshop.
Captured in 2x2 binning as only short time.
This image was autoguided using my 400mm focal length refractor and my black and white SC1 webcam.
