Rosette Nebula in RGB & HA

Another image shot by the combined efforts of the Hancock D'arienzo team. , The image was shot from 2 different locations over 700 miles apart using different cameras and different telescopes.


I have combined my 2.25 hours of RGB using the Canon 5D Mark II with Andy's 2.5 hours of Hydrogen Alpha using his FLI ML8300 mono CCD camera shot from Long Island New York.

We hope you like it.
