Endlich ist das Hauptprojekt aus meinen La Palma Urlaub fertig. Das 6 Panel Mosaik von Rho Ophiuchi.
Nach Tagen der Bearbeitung habe ich auch keine Lust mehr weiterzuarbeiten. So schnell werde ich kein 6 Panel Mosaik wiederholen ;)
Da ich jedes Panel nur 1 Stunde lang belichtet habe, wurde es natürlich nicht tief. Je mehr ich zum Horizont kam, desto mehr störte mich der Sahara-Staub. Mehr als 2 Stunden Belichtung pro Nacht waren daher nicht drin. Zwei Abschnitte musste ich sogar komplett neu machen.
Tja, selbst im Astro Urlaub läuft nicht alles gut.
Trotzdem bin ich mit dem Ergebnis zufrieden, auch wenn es nicht perfekt ist.
Hoffe euch gefällt es auch trotz einiger Schwächen .

Finally, the main project from my La Palma holiday is ready. The 6 Panel Mosaic by Rho Ophiuchi.
After days of editing I have no desire to continue working. That's why I do not do a mosaic with 6 subjects so fast.
Of course, since I exposed each panel for 1 hour, it did not get deep. The more I came to the horizon, the more disturbed me the Sahara dust. More than 2 hours of exposure per night were therefore not in it. I even had to make two sections completely new.
Well, even in Astro vacation is not going well.
Nevertheless, I am satisfied with the result, even if it is not perfect.
Hope you like it, despite some weaknesses.
