      Description

      This image is a four part mosaic.

      It's very challenging to do mosaics using a Star Adventurer. I must do the framing by hand, using a tripod ball head.

      Furthermore, must confirm -in field- if all parts merge togethe properly... can be harsh, but it´ s worth it!
