Stop & Smell the Rosette

Full tricolour narrowband image with RGB stars complete!
I had some fun with the colour palette on this one - hope you like it too!

Big one HERE

C&C welcome, as always

Would the Rosette Nebula by any other name look as sweet?

The bland New General Catalog designation of NGC 2237 doesn't appear to diminish the appearance of this flowery emission nebula. Inside the nebula lies an open cluster of bright young stars designated NGC 2244. These stars formed about four million years ago from the nebular material and their stellar winds are clearing a hole in the nebula's center, insulated by a layer of dust and hot gas. Ultraviolet light from the hot cluster stars causes the surrounding nebula to glow. The Rosette Nebula spans about 100 light-years across, lies about 5000 light-years away, and can be seen with a small telescope towards Monoceros.(text>Apod)

Lol

As it turns out, space actually does have a distinct odor. ... Astronauts returning from space claim that their suits smell, in a word, burnt. The lingering scent of space is “acrid” and “metallic,” reminding the astronauts of charred meat or welding fumes.

Yeah and why they need females in the ISStation - the blokes failed the experimenting of cooking powdered steaks with Bunsen burners

Beautiful Image Andy

Yeah great shot Andy and colours are pleasing. While it is a big object, I've always liked the centre of the Rosette, lots of interesting structure, well done in our currently rather trying conditions I'm actually contemplating heading out tonight, for the first night since 4 Dec

Edit...nup heavy smoke rolled in around 9pm...lucky I made the decision that this would happen and decided to stay home

Jealous of your sky time Andy

Mike

Cheers Mike, Bob & Marc - appreciate the nice feedback!
Btw - Have you spotted the Mermaid yet?
She's blue, upside down & near the middle. She was pointed out to me a colleague in the USA
