This is my first attempt at a multi-panel mosaic. This image taken over four nights on July 7, 10, 11, and 12, 2019

Each night consisted of the following
30 Ha, 30 Oiii, 30 Sii frames each with a gain of 200 for 210s each

Total number of frames to process for this mosaic = 360 @ 210s each = 21.0 hours.
