Heart of Rosette Nebula in H-alpha extra narrowband
I first became interested in astronomy as a teenager but took an extended break from the hobby when I went away to university. Now at age 55 I am picking it back up. Interesting, fun, and highly addictive. My favorite viewing location is my suburban Maryland back yard even though it is somewhat tree obstructed with moderate light pollution.
