Description

My 2nd and 3rd quarter projects from Marathon.  I spent around three weeks gathering 30 minute subs of Hydrogen to see exactly what was going on there... then another set of 30 minute Oxygen.  As you can see, the Cygnus Loop seems to be pushing against the existing hydrogen in the Sadr region.  I suppose someone may know which come first.  Completely fascinating to have the ability to illuminate the night skies this way.

Complete integration on a two panel mosaic, more to come.  Attempted 12.  About 70% complete.

Stay tuned and Clear Skies!

Matt
