Description

14 panel mosaic.

Made under adverse conditions: Bas seeing, low in the sky, not entirely dark, light haze,...

Due to the use of a proplanet 807 filter s/n ratio was quite bad (one has to do something to combat bad seeing) in hindsight it might have been better to use the Baader IR685 to have less noise in the final stack and also in processing I was not able to get rid of all noise. This can be apparent in the mare..
