I have pre-planned a mosaic for the Rho Ophiuchi nebula. I've managed to capture 15 panels so far, through a Baader Luminance filter.

11" Celestron EdgeHD w Hyperstar(F/2)

Each panel is 15 frames, 2 minutes each. Combined with Photoshop CS6.

Mosaic planned using Asimoplan and SkyTools. Images acquired with APT. Pre & post processed with Nebulosity3

Image has been rescaled 25% of original and converted to .jpg The original was over 2GB
