Rosette or Poppy....?!!

Recommended Posts

So having spent the past couple of weeks collecting data to print and frame this as a gift for my wife today, she said so what is it, a poppy?

Oh well, I guess its the thought that counts...

I told her it was a rose for Valentine’s Day, that I given blood, sweat (well these temperatures that’s hardly true), and tears trying to get it done in time. To which she said, ‘thanks, it’s really lovely, but the black center makes it look more like a poppy...’

Maybe we should rename it the Opium Nebula - certaining she usually finds any mention of my hobby by me as pretty mind numbing....!! I’ve previously dragged her out to the scope to show her Saturn and Jupiter and she just says, ‘that’s nice, can I go in now?’

She did get a kick out of the total solar eclipse last year though, so maybe there is hope.....
