      Description

      The Orion Project

      Each image (panel) of my 200-panel mosaic was shot with a William Optics 132flt scope and a 16200 mono camera and Astrodon filters. There are 12 individual images per filter (L-R-G-B) for a total of 2.4 hours per individual panel. It's a massive work that took 5 years. I suggest making the jump to the full image for the "FULL EFFECT".
