Description

Once more a mosaic of the Rosette but this time in HA 9 Panels of 6 x 300s
As the summer heat and humidity kicks in and Sydney sweats under leaden clouds this is getting harder. Along with mixed seeing this was more of a battle to complete but one more step towards completing a OIII/HA/SIII NB project. Must be time to move to a mountain somewhere. Sadly Australia has no mountains. Our highest peak (Mt Kosiosko) is a rounded hill you can walk over without breaking a sweat (assuming it's not +40 degrees C.)
