NGC2238 - Rosette Nebula


Recommended Posts

Evening All,

 

I'm sure I've moaned about this target before on here... Due to trees I can get about 1h/night so I've not done a long integration on this one. So a total integration time here of 5 Hours.

Really happy with the way this one turned out, even with the limited time available on this target.

Really like this version of Rosette and the colours you have used - I’ve imaged it this year but much wider FOV and different colour palette. I had hoped to image the Rosette in narrowband with my 106EDT but time and weather means it’s now like your views heading west into trees and light pollution from the warehousing in Northampton.

your channel integrations look really clean for especially Oiii

What filters are you using ?

 Thank you!

Yes indeed, between weather and trees it's not an easy target.

I use the 3.5nm Antlia filters, I've found them very good even being able to take decent Oiii with a 44% moon

I only started narrowband last year and made modest investment in a set of optilong - but they are 7nm/6.5nm/6.5nm

its does seem that the 3-5nm filter versions deliver better SN especially in moonlight - got a few hours in last night but the Oiii even with a week old moon - well not great......I’ve Not heard of Antila filters  at this pass band it’s always Chroma or Astrodon which are rather on the pricey side of things.

thanks for the info - something to research and doubtless reduce the bank balance at some point.
