Description

This 150 tile mosaic covers a small portion of the southern milky way from the constellations Ophiuchus and Scorpius. The native pixel scale is approximately 60,000 x 45,000. Obviously, big data reduction here for practical presentation. Each tile is a 3 hour integrated exposure in Hydrogen alpha. It is part of a 320 segment mosaic - work in progress. Processing goal is to reveal extended H-a structures. This is a trial assembly of the data, more refinement to come. 100% of the image acquisition was gathered remotely.
