Cygnus 20 Panel Mosaic - Ha

Technical card

Imaging telescope or lens: Takahashi FSQ106EDX

Imaging camera: FLI Ml 16803

Mount: Astro-Physics Mach 1 GTO

Guiding telescope or lens: Celestron Finderscope 9x50

Guiding camera: Orion SSAG

Software: Main Sequence Software Sequence Generator ProPixInsight

Filter: Ha 5nm

Accessory: FLI CFW-4-5 50mm Square

Resolution: 8319x6672 job: 387071


20 panels * 3h each = 60h total

Image has been resampled by 50%. The original composition is a wee bit too large; 16641 x 13345

I have collected another 20 panels for this particular mosaic and the amount of resources necessary to to work on an image of this size is extraordinary.

For example:

Gradient merge mosaic was slightly over 20m to complete. A contours star mask targeting 7 wavelet planes took 6m to complete and a standard mask with binarize was slightly over 11m.

I have started on the 40 panel which is non-contiguous, but I highly doubt I'll post it up until next year as I'd like to focus on what I really want to be proficient with and that is LRGB mosaics.

Thanks for looking and stopping on by!
