NGC2239 Rosette Nebula v1.1

NGC2239 and 2244: 15s subs at -20C, 139 gain and 21 offset: 77 x L, 32 x R, 39 x G, 40 x B on the Skywatcher Esprit 80 with the ZWO ASI 1600MM-C and ZWO RGB filters

This was almost destroyed by the neighbour's heating vent pushing steam across my imaging area. I discarded the worst frames but there is still a bad background. Version 1.0 still had some terrible backgrounds and I made a right hash of processing the image. I weeded the data again and started from scratch and I think this is a vast improvement (limited data permitting). Processed in PixInsight with some final touches in Adobe Lightroom (clarity and vibrancy).
