      Description

      This is my biggest achievement in astrophotography so far! Multiple months of testing with different edits and settings but now finally ended up with this

      My 135mm half gigapixel panorama from La Palma version 2. The first version was far from good for todays standards and I knew there was alot more in there.
      It took me a long time to figure out how I could stitch all the data of the sky to one perfect mosaic. Thanks to the help of michael_ostaszewski I was able to get the sky part perfectly stitched in Astropixelprocessor which took 3 days to calculate!

      The edit on the sky was done in Pixinsight and Photoshop.

      The image has a total of 104 pannels.
      I cropped the image slightly to just show the interesting parts!

      I hope you like it
