      Description

      Finally finished my big mosaic I have been working on for nearly a year. This is a 28 panel mosaic consisting of just shy of 200 hours of imaging and final output of 1.35 gigapixels. This was all shot remotely from the observatory at the Marathon Sky Park in Marathon, TX.

      This is a extremely scaled down version. I will try to come up with a good way to present the full version. Full size is 34039 x 39694 pixels.
