The Rosette Nebula is one of the brightest and most photographed nebulas in the nightsky! It is a diffuse emission nebula with an embedded open star cluster in the constellation Unicorn. You can see the star cluster in the middle (The brighter blue stars) popular images can be found in the hubble palette and RGB (natural color) + H-Alpha (red color) and Oiii (blue color) for the nebulosity. I photographed this nebula from my remote observatory in Spain.
Author of the photographs
Jakob Sahner is a 21 year old German astrophotographer who came into contact with the fascination of space early in his childhood. Very early he began to make projects with image and video editing programs and after graduating from high school he completed an apprenticeship as a photo and media technical assistant. The subject has grabbed him like an addiction although he had no knowledge about this hobby. He just wanted to do it and try it out! In the now more than 4 years he has become a worldwide known astrophotographer and has developed his skills from normal landscape astrophotography to deepsky photography.
