Phew, i finally managed to get this mosaic done. This is by far my biggest project. Most of the data was collected this summer but i also integrated data from last year and spring this year.
The panels of this 3 x 3 mosaic where stitched together in AstroPixelProcessor, which worked amazingly well. Postprocessing was done in PixInsight and Photoshop. I used Starnet++ for creating a starless version, which took about 2 hours on my old MacBook ;-)
