I just finished this up last night and it took two frames to fit this baby in. I can't rotate so I have to give her the mosaic treatment! I hope you all like!!

Thanks for looking,

Jimmy

Another fine image Jimmy and a fine job stitching this together :applause:. You got a hold of that little galaxy hanging in the right upper corner (theSkyX has it labeled as PGC14030). Good stuff!

That image shouldn't be aching in your heart, that's a fantastic image of the California nebula! Thanks for sharing.
