This is a mosaic of two frames of 4 X 900 sec in Ha and OIII, the final project I am planning would have 12 X 900 Sec or 9 X 1200 sec, what would you do?

Also two frames is not enough, I will need 4 frames because there is some more information at the bottom.

Your input and advice is welcome for this project of mine, thank you
