Just getting into DSLR astrophotography and this is an inspiration! How much of the frame did the nebula actually take up at 300mm?

Hi AbPho, starbob1, dciobota and jstrandberg,

 

Thanks for your kind word!

jstrandberg,

Here's a small jpeg of the unprocessed stack, you can see how much of the frame the Rosette takes up on a 300mm lens using a crop sensor camera.
