Description

After weeks and weeks of cloudy nights I finally got to test my new equipment and imaging workflow with the Raspberry Pi and Astroberry - I am loving it already. Additionally, this is my first attempt at a mosaic and I must say - I am pretty happy with the result =)

The imaging location is the city of Vienna (a very dreadful Bortle but honestly I am quite astonished what I got out of the data in the end.

I would love some constructive feedback on processing and the image as a whole!
