The Rosette Nebula is located in the constellation of Monoceros. The name comes from the obvious rose-like shape of the emission nebula that glows brightly background. In the center of the nebula is the star cluster designated NGC 2244. This image was taken in March of 2020 with the Astro-Pysics AP160EDF.
