Into the Soul nebula.

I always wanted to make a big mosaic,with allot of details in the dept.
And the Soul Nebula is one of those object that has allot of interesting areas.

I got lucky with good weather,so i gived it a shot.
To bad one panel didnt match well for some reason,maybe the camera got shifted.

The amount of data is huge ..27 Gig.
First i stacked it all at once,wich cost me a whole day.
But the bad panel made allot of distorsions,so then i stacked it panel by panel.

In pixinsight i used GradientMergeMosaic tool wich is a great tool for large mosaics.
After that i did NRGB,Ha as Luminance,but got some artifacts around stars.
Convolution did help a little.
Im now still thinking to make a new without a luminance layer,see how it goes.
But i really like the Azure blue color.

At the end its about 36 hour of for now i move on to other projects.

Well i hope you like it.

Well hope you like is all
