Nikon D5300 full spectrum.

L-eNhance filter.

90x120sec at ISO 800.

Wow very nice crop of the Rosette. What do you use for noise reduction. Your backgrounds are always so smooth while keeping detail in the high contrast area.

Thank you everyone!!!

I used a little bit of Dehaze and Clarity in Camera RAW in Photoshop to make the dark dust clouds pop a bit.

Not necessarily the best practice  but I liked the outcome.
