Here is my attempt at a 4 panel mosaic of the California nebula. I captured 200 x 30sec subs of each panel. I threw out about 40-60% of each panel, keeping the best, leaving me with p1x84, p2x59, p3x114 and p4x127 subs. Processed in Pixinsight. Panels 1 and 2 were captured on October 27, and 3 and 4 were captured on November 1. Comments always welcome. Enjoy!
