Description

A four panel mosaic, a mini-panorama, to display the contrast between the dramatic chaos of the IC410 complex and the blissfully calm clouds of the California nebula. Deep exposures (~10 hours each) for the intermediate panels of the mosaic doesn't reveal any interconnecting features between the two structures (except tiny NGC1579). So instead of the strong interconnections like those illustrated by the Cone and Rosette nebula, here we have the vastness of space. Gamma stretch applied in Maxim along with mild unsharp mask.
