ORION. This is a marathon O'Donoghue-Penrice production owing more to Tom than to me. Tom began the luminance and Ha in Spain four years ago using one Tak 106N/Atik 11000. We then set up the dual Tak

I m happy to say that the 400hr Orion image is now available to view at 40% full size through Zoomify on my website. Click on the Full Screen button then zoom and pan away. https://www.astrophoto

Thanks Olly, and everyone for their comments. I'm delighted with the result, so I'm glad you're enjoying it. This almost got out of hand, as despite the 11000 chip size, at 530mm, we thought we would

Thanks again everyone. The one at the exhibition is only about 12x7 inches but looks good in a backlit box. I hope they correct the text though. It was swapped with ignacios winning pic. We can tell you at 1.8m it looks amazing

This is almost the 1.8m x 1.0m size that I print out as the largest size. So now you can see the Mosaic as it was meant to be seen. Big, very big.

The 14hrs per frame really shows in the detail, colour and quality as you zoom in and in. The overlays of the 1m data from the TECs on M42, Horsehead, Running Man, and M78 look excellent

at this size too.

I hope you enyoy it in a new way.

Thanks to my friend John Caffrey for working on the site, and to Olly Penrice for joining me in this project.

Tom.

As you know, I'm really glad to see this made public at a size which distinguishes it from other Orion mosaics - even if it could go even bigger! 👹🤣.  This does justice to a phenomenal capture in which I was privileged to play a part. After several years of psychotherapy I might even consider myself up for adding more, so as to bring in the WItch Head, for instance. Oh God, did I really say that?

Yes Olly had been asking about a bigger version for a long time, so it only took 5 years to finally deliver. As it turns out this had to broken into 1024 images to create the zoom version.

As for the Witchhead...... I started that Mosaic Winter 2019. I already have the Witchead in a 2 pane image, but the Winter Project is more of a 6 pane wide field, which would stitch to the 400hr Orion

and enhance it even more. The Witchhead region will have the same, if not more data in each pane.

When I m in my 60's I'll go the other side out to NGC2170 :)

I've seen this image several times including the large print that adorns one of Olly's walls at Les Granges and I always find it inspirational. That the image is now on line in all its glory is great news! Well done.

On my all too brief visit to Les Granges in 2016, a lasting memory was the Orion print on the wall and then the Hunter in person dominating the pre dawn sky as we left to drive to the airport.

Lovely to hear a lot of people have seen the print on Ollys wall. It certainly belongs on the walls in Ollys. No better place to have one.

Absolutely sensational.  I could literally pan around that for hours.  I'm viewing on a 5K Mac and boy does it look good on that!

Bravo all involved, top class.

Along with Jonas' M31 image, this is my all time favourite SGL masterpiece. Epic, monumental, stupendous.

Simply breathtaking. 

This should come with a health warning. You could get lost in this for hours!
