Description

This three panel mosaic was imaged in Marathon Texas at the Marathon Motel & RV Park. Under a Class I Sky, the nights were cool and clear. After waiting for Cassiopeia to come up and the zodiacal light to set, we set out to capture the best data I've ever captured!

Imaged on an Astro-Physics 1100GTO with a William Optics 132 FLT and a QHY 16200A CCD, the data was clean and crisp.
