Description

9 Panel Mosaic (9 x 6 x 180s) of the Rosette in OIII from my balcony in January 2018
As if astro-imaging wasn't hard enough (a hour to setup and a window of 1-2 hours for acquisition if I'm lucky), Ocams' Razor takes the whole circus to a new level.
Despite loosing some great clear nights to the Windows 10 Security patch issue knocking out the Auotguider (thanks Bill!) I now hope to repeat the exercise in HA and SII .
