My first mosaic :)
I'm very happy with it!

It was quite a work to get the job done (finding processing time was the most difficult one ;).
Shot the data in feb 2018, cold dark winter nights in my very light polluted backyard.
It's about 4h - 5h integration time..

Here are the links to the frames itself.
