Description

This 3 panel mosaic image is an experiment, from which I learned a lot. Especially when it is not recommended to make mosaic. Unfortunately the light pollution was so strong on each panel, that I was not able to remove that without harming the halo of the galaxy. So as for the halo, this image is probably not realistic.
