The Rosette Ne­bula

Sky at Night Magazine - - HOTSHOTS -

GER­ARD TÀRTALO, LLEIDA, SPAIN, 16 DE­CEM­BER 2017

Ger­ard says: “I chose this tar­get be­cause I hadn’t pho­tographed it be­fore and it’s a beau­ti­ful ne­bula that fits well in my field of view. Per­haps the big­gest prob­lem was the ex­ces­sive coma in the stars around the edges, caused by the aber­ra­tion of the New­to­nian’s par­a­bolic pri­mary mir­ror.” Equip­ment: Canon EOS 600D DSLR cam­era, Sky-Watcher 150/750 PDS New­to­nian, Sky-Watcher NEQ6 Pro mount.
