Description

This mosaic composed of two panels I have been able to finish this week, using the magnificent data that we obtain with the TEC160 of my dear Jim and Linda Powell.

I tried it a couple of years ago, but the result I never liked it at all, and although this result is a little more forced than the previous background and the details in the galaxies I like much more, even though this time I have not used the Ha data that I had , since I haven't been able to combine the panels.

I hope you like it.

The old result:
