Description

The Andromeda Galaxy- 15 panel mosaic. Data Acquired over the last three months from MaRIO (Marathon Astronomical Remote Imaging Observatory). Images acquired through Sequence Generator Pro. Assembled through tedious notes in Pixinsight using Mosaic by Coordinates, and then Gradient Merge Mosaic. Basic LRGB calibration processes used.

A labor of love and great effort. Such tremendous heavens require no less.
