This four panel mosaic gives an incredible widefield view of one of the most colourful regions in the night sky. A collection of intricate dust clouds, reflection, emission and dark nebulae and background globular clusters makes this a fascinating area.

All data captured previous summer (end of June) in Mt. Parnon Greece @ 1430m. We finally found some time to process and merge all of them in one picture.

Luminance taken by Angelos Kechagias with an Atik 428EX on a Nikon 50mm Lens, RGB taken by Evangelos Souglakos (me) with an Atik 4000 on a Canon 50mm Lens.

Both lenses were stopped at f/5.6.
Filters: LRGB Baader
Sub-exposures: LRGB  5mins
Total time: 4h per panel 

Processing in Photoshop by Angelos Kechagias.
