Title The Rosette Nebula
Caption This glimpse into the universe is the Rosette Nebula, a Hydrogen II region located near one end of a giant molecular cloud in the Monoceros region of the Milky Way Galaxy. The open cluster NGC 2244 (in the center of the image) is closely associated with the nebulosity, the stars of the cluster having been formed from the nebula's matter. This image is a combination of over 40 raw images obtained from a profesional institution-grade telescope located high on a mountain in Spain. For this image I rented time on an Officina Stellare ProRC700 70cm telescope in the IC Observatory run by Telescope.live and specified the target area of the sky I want and how many of what type of raw images I want. When you take a photo, your camera shutter is only open for a fraction of a second, but astrophotography is different. This deep sky object is soooo dim that it required the camera shutter to be open for 5, 10 or 15 minutes at a time. The colors in this image are created by high energy radiation from the stars illuminating gas clouds (a bit like Neon lights). The red colors are produced by energised Hydrogen and Silicon gas while the blue colors are prodced by energised Oxygen gas. Separate raw images are captured for each of the Hydrogen, Silicon and Oxygen wavelengths of light. These files can get quite large, it's not uncommon to capture 3 to 5Gb of data for a single image. This raw data is then processed using specialised astronomical software (similar to what the Hubble team use) to produce the image you see here. The radiation from the young stars excites the atoms in the nebula, causing them to emit radiation themselves producing the emission nebula we see. The mass of the nebula is estimated to be around 10,000 solar masses. The photons from this cluster have travelled over 5200 years to reach my lens and your walls.
