Description

A justifiably popular presentation of this spectacular region of Cygnus, with interesting features and phenomena across the entire FOV, rendered in an adapted Hubble palette retaining a small amount of green to aid the range of tonal colours. This is a 6 panel mosaic that was originally conceived as a focus on NGC 7000 and then after some discussion Steve and I thought "What the heck, let's do another mosaic project". Aiming for 6hrs of data for each NB channel in each panel, has resulted in 54 x 1200s subs per panel, with a grand total of 324 x 1200s subs or 108 hours total integration as well as a personal record of processing time.

I have uploaded the high-res jpeg file of 20MB, so I hope everyone has the opportunity to view the detail that the FSQ106 has captured. Please let me know if I ought to upload a smaller version to ease bandwith and display.

I've uploaded a selection of interesting areas of the mosaic . . . obviously feeling quite "arty" this afternoon!
