Description

15 Panel OIII mosaic (15x3x180s OIII) from Freshwater in Sydney.
I wanted to see what was there as both objects are quite photogenic in OIII
Also a decent clear night blessed with a near full moon blazing 10 degrees away in my imaging window limited options. I managed to just squeeze this in before the house got in the way.
Worth a deeper run under a dark sky.
