Bernard Miller's 18 hour narrowband image of the Rosette Nebula inspired me to 
shoot the nebula with my little-old QHY8 one-shot color camera.  Exposure was 
5x5 minutes at the Antennas site on Wednesday, Jan 18th.  In processing I had a 
lot of trouble with the color balance.  On the 17th  I imaged NGC 2174 - the 
Monkey Head Nebula.  Steve Coe insists there is absolutely NO monkey head in 
the nebula.  I disagree.
