Fair playBrendan 19 hours at this time of year is dedication ! I love the detail in the top right corner of the dark nebula 'string' pointing towards the 'eye' ur must show many light years long?

Well done

Thanks very much Keith.

Actually anyone doing astrophotography should be using Sequence Generator Pro ( www.mainsequencesoftware.com/Products/SGPro ) as it makes going back to target & continuing gathering data for the same image night after night - week after week (if need be) just so much easier. Dedication then is really not a big deal.
I have been using that software since I started and have watched it evolve over the years......it really is worth the effort to get up to speed with it.
Anybody else using it?

Brendan.

Just thought I would put this up. I have started the second panel of the mosaic. This is one Ha sub from each panel (stitched together) - no processing, just a quick stretch & convert to JPEG......to show the coverage of the final image.......whenever it will be completed.
