Description

2-panel mosaic of the dust and nebulosity in Scorpius and the Rho Ophiuchi complex. The RGB data was shot in 2020 with a modded Canon 600D, but I came back to this target in June 2021 with a mono-converted Canon 60D to shoot luminance data. Both sets of data were shot through a Rokinon 135mm f/2 lens. The RGB was done with a Skyguider Pro, and the luminance with an iExos-100.

Data was calibrated, stacked, registered as a mosaic, and then composed as LRGB in Astro Pixel Processor. Stars removed/reduced with Starnet++, with final tweaks in GIMP.

C&C welcome and appreciated!
