Rosette Nebula Region

Astrophoto Home Page | Home Page

The Rosette Nebula is photographically the most obvious object in this region at Monoceros/Orion/Gemini border, but numerous smaller and dimmer objects can be found here too (see enlarged area around the Cone Nebula). The context of this frame can be seen in the ultra-wide mosaic of this part of the sky.
