Here a mosaic of the NGC7000 region.

It's my latest (and maybe last) test with the ZWO ASI 6200 color.
It's a mosaic 2x1 took under a very polluted sky (SQM 17.5) with a L-eNhance filter by Optolong

Unfortunately the flattener/reducer was designed for an APS-C format camera, so it doesn't perform well on the full framen ASI 6200.

Thank you to Giuseppe Donatiello for helping me putting together the mosaic.
