Walking on the Moon

Perseus 6 Panel Hybrid Mosaic Ngc 1499 to M45

Got a little ahead of myself and finished this sooner than I had hoped.  Testament to planning your processing before you begin.  First time I have ever needed a spreadsheet to keep track of what was going on!  

Where to begin 1058 subs, 138 hours of data spanning 1 year all in one image, oh and my first serious attempt and a mosaic of any sorts!
I have taken the 6 panel mosaic of the area and enhanced Calderbald 30, California, IC 348, M45 and LDN 777 areas with either FSQ or OS RH 200 data.  Image is large @ 193 mb but only way to see the detail, it gets a little busy in the small size.

Surely something for everyone in this image - even a PN in there for good measure (start in the middle and work down)  Full acquisition details attached below the image! Too much to type in :)

I have also included a version here with less blue - due to size and physical compression it appears to strong in the smaller viewing sizes so this just resolves that for easier viewing.

Hope you like.

Terrific Paddy.  I think I've managed 0 hours over the last few weeks, so at that rate ......

Tell me new scope in Garage here, or as it was called by my son 'a really expensive spider house!'.  Thanks for comments.

Hey Paddy that's excellent - the full size image is just fabulous!

Gotta sign off now though cos used up all my monthly data allowance!  :icon_biggrin:

LOL - yeah sorry about that was the only way to ensure you can see what I hoped you would.  Imagine this 15 years ago still be watching the first line loading.....

Holy hell! :hiding:

That is nothing short of spectacular! I am SO impressed!!!

Thanks Martin - felt like a bit of a journey getting this out.  It has been on slow boil for a few weeks waiting for final data sets.  But all came together quite easily thanks to that and the planning.  Glad you enjoyed.

Now if someone can match this quality with a ZWO ASI1600, then I would believe it is a real contender (please don't tell me this WAS with a ZWOASI1600 :smiley:)

I can't comment on the ZWO but not in this set of images 583,683 and ML 8300 and a dark site!

I'm viewing it on a 5k Mac and it's stunning.

i am a little slow so it took me a while to work out what PN meant lol and i also clicked on full size ha ha i have a 200 meg connection and it sill took over a minute to open lol boy was it worth it .

It already looks compressed when it shrinks down so worth the effort and wait I hope?  I felt it was only way to show it in it's true light.

Excellent, means my UHD colour calibrated option is back on song - all went a bit bonkers last week with dodgy ICC profiles and strange software updates.

No worries there Paddy, I really couldn't fault it, even at 5k.

Maybe a few little things in there but on such a large image you start to lose track of it all, i could only see 22% of image at 100% zoom even on 33" UHD!  WIll no doubt tweak a little but nothing major.  Then will have printed (and getting signed by CMDR Chris Hadfield next month which was nice of him).

That is nice, and certainly a keeper.

This is what I get at 5k, and I would have to be super critical at that resolution.

What an amazing image. I've just spent ages looking at it - there's so much to see!

Thanks Michael - I keep going back and looking and I made it :) All a bit of a blur in processing mode but enjoying more now it's out there.  Appreciate the feedback and glad you liked.
