Description

I'm not even sure where to start on this one. 1.5 years of data collection. Throwing out data, collecting more. Endless hardware setup issues to finally arrive at what I believe to be a pretty accurate collection of information on the region.

Image includes (among many things):

IC 410- The Tadpole Nebula

IC 405- The Flaming Star Nebula

M 38- The Starfish Cluster

IC 417- The Spider & The Fly Nebula

NGC 1907 Open Cluster

6 panel mosaic captured on my dual rig setup from February 2017- Present.

Thanks for looking!
