Two pane mosaic captured under two full moons on January 20th and Feb 15th, two hours for each section with about a 50% overlap,

Decided to get Astro Pixel Processor and very happy with how this has come out. I've got a few more mosaics to stitch together so looks like this will be a very valuable tool.

Minimal processing in PI, seems I've done something odd with the stars as the bright ones have dark spots in the middle now.

Star71, ZWO 1600mm, 5 minute subs at gain 300.
