Very good, what did you use to stitch it all together?

Very impressive mosaic Ola. I love big mosaics, and this is a triumph. 

One small piece of feedback if that's ok - i find the contrast a bit too much for my liking. The black point has been slightly clipped in a few places, and in others is also very low. But other than that it is a very impressive mosaic indeed!

That's a great image. When seen like this I feel that there are new large-scale 'objects' on view. I'd call them objects because they clearly have coherent large scale structure.

Loud applause!

Hi, and thanks for the constructive feedback. I've also seen this. The problem has been that some panels only have 1 hours exp, and others 6 hours. I couldn't stretch the pictures equally, so the results were not good. I've stretched all the pictures completely, before stitching. So the exposure level becomes a little different throughout the whole picture

As good as this is I think that using Astro Pixel Processor to bring it together would take it to a new level.
