    Vela SNR - Mega Mosaic

    It has been a pleasure and a honour to work again with Robert on the composition of this stunning sky area.
    Robert had already done a couple of previous images of the Vela SNR, at the very beginning purely with his own FSQ106 data and some years later merging them with DSS2, on a crop of the entire field.

    Few weeks ago we had the idea of extending DSS2 to the entire field (~250 1° x 1° mosaic pieces) and layering it again over the original FSQ106 RGB image.

    And that's the result!
