Description

- These are 2 objects that need no introduction for those of us who love this hobby, so I will tell you more about what they mean to me and their composition.

 - After a long time I finally have my equipment as I dreamed 12 years ago when I started, and the truth is that the last acquisition this summer of the ASI 2600MC has changed the rules of the game. It is a beast.

 - The mosaic is composed of 2 images taken during the nights I could this summer from my bacyard in a city with Bortle 6. For this, the help of the L-Ultimate filter has been incredible, it just seems like magic that even if there were neighbours who some nights decided that the sky was Bortle 7 or 8 that night, the images came out with all their splendour. I am truly delighted.

 - Each panel was Drizzled x2 (the laptot looked like it was going to fly ), but I finally downsampled it to 25% to upload it here. I will make more versions to include the reflection nebula and the stars in RGB and with different palettes.

 - I wanted to thank the community for their reviews, tests, comments...etc that have made me decide on this great equipment.

 - I hope you enjoy it, and of course constructive criticism is welcome.

Cheer up, health and good skies!
