    This is a 2 panel mosaic of Flying Bat/Squid and Seahorse Nebula.

    Camera : QHY600 with Readout mode 0 and Gain set to 26
    Telescope: Takahashi FSQ-106EDX4
    Mount: AP Mach1GTO

    Each Panel is made up of the following:
    (69) Ha @ 1200s - 1x1
    (64) Lum @ 180secs - 1x1
    (32) R @ 300secs - 1x1
    (approx. 32) G @ 300secs - 1x1
    (approx. 32) B @ 300secs - 1x1
    And the panel with Squid is (38) OIII @ 1200s - 1x1

    This was shot from the remote observatory in Marathon, TX at the Marathon Motel and RV Park.
