Description

During two recent nights here on Lizard Island I managed to catch panels to the south (including the Statue of Liberty nebula) and north of Eta Carina in order to make a three panel mosaic. Not the easiest endevour with a Star Adventurer mount. So no fancy platesolving software helping me out. Also PI refused to put them together, saying it could not find matching stars, so I had to do it manually in PS.
