After being unable to do astrophotography for a long time due to bad weather, I was finally able to sit outside again with my telescope on March 21, 2020.

The DSO that day was NGC 2244 (Rosette Nebula)

hello Jantje ,

i also tried the Rosette but as i can not drive to a more dark site in zeeuws-vlaanderen (Nieuwvliet) or better to the Eiffel , a had to stay at home .here in Brugge the sky looks more as a pumpkin soup . i also tried the Leo triplet . i wil not show the results here : terrible bad . i have to wait until corona is gone ( the virus not the celestial ) .

after all : your result is quite good .

note : i use gimp to remove the most stars so the nebula look better .

Hi Guido,
Don't you use a Light pollution filter - I also have a lot of light pollution here (live close to the street). My garden looks like King's Day in the Netherlands - completely orange from the street lighting.

I am using the following filter "IDAS NB1 2" "and this filter really does the job.

i used a light pollution filter and the Leo triplet was almost black and white : no color .

Very nice. I couldn't help pull it into Photoshop to see if I could pull more detail out of it. Hope you don't mind? Here's what I done.

This is a great result! Can't believe this is only 3.5 h in Bortle 7. Did you use heavy noise reduction?

I have not used heavy noise reduction.
I use APP for stacking and these are on default
