Description

The Belt & Sword of Orion

For the last month, every bit of time on my scope has been devoted to a mosaic of the Orion Constellation. I'm exactly 1/12th done with it, having finished one panel of 12 HA-L-R-G-B images. It will probably take me another two years at this point, but I'm all in!

12 Panels

HA- 480s x 5 - 1x1
L- 120s x 5 - 1x1
R- 120s x 5 - 2x2
G- 12os x 5 - 2x2
B- 120s x 5 - 2x2
