      Description

      Widefield mosaic of the region in Cepheus including the Iris and Elephant Trunk nebulae, plus others in between. This was shot over 4 nights with my modded Canon 600D and Rokinon 135mm f/2 at f/2.8, guided on a SkyGuider Pro mount. Unfortunately I had to scale the image down by 50% in order to upload.

      Stacked and processed in APP, Starnet++, and GIMP.
