Photo of the Week

This week for Photo of the Week, we would like to feature an amazing deep-sky exposure of the Rosette Nebula taken in bicolour narrowband. Captured by the talented photographer Simon Waters from Melbourne, Australia, this amazing shot is composed of 11 hours-worth of exposures, with each one consisting of an exposure of 15 minutes. Unlike traditional deep-sky exposures, narrowband filters allow for imaging of planetary nebulae and supernova remnants during times when the moon is visible. This lets astrophotographers to produce fantastic shots such as the one shown above.
