Description

This is a 3 panel mosaic taken with narrow band H and S filters.

Exposures were 5 mins. Six exposures for each filter for each panel for a total of 36 images.

I did not use the oxygen filter because there was little to no image after a 5 min exposure.

The palette is HSS.

Thanks for looking.
