Please send this to Sky and Telescope....  it deserves a two page spread.  Amazing work!  Something to aspire to.

Still glorious on my return visits to your image.

 

Manuel, can you give us some details on the equipment and mosaic program you used for this wonder?

Hi Dynan,

 

I've used a Moravian G3 11002 with Astrodon filters. The focusing is done with a DIY focuser that I 3d printed with a nema 17 motor. The lens is a Samyang 135 stopped down to F/2.8.

 

I used SGP for mosaics and capture, and Pixinsight to process them.

 

Thanks again!

This truly is an amazing image. The effort you put into making is very much appreciated. Sometimes all the clouds get me down, but images like this inspire me to keep persevering.

Stunning! Totally worth all the work, that was needed to achieve that. It is also worth a very big print for a big wall.
