Hi SGL, I ve been away for quite a while, but its good to be back, and have a picture to post. This is Cassiopeia, a 25 pane 530mm mosaic. I started this in 2016 when I captured the Lum pane

Thanks Mark. Its 15x10 degrees of sky, so huge. Cheers Brendan, Yes as soon as the zoomify version is up in the site I'll post the link. This needs to be seen as big as possible. The more

Spectacular. I don't know what else to say without drooling! One of the best I've seen.

Wow! Love it Tom. Another huge piece of work that one could just get lost in......looking forward to being able to browse around this in high resolution 🤩

Cheers Brendan,

Yes as soon as the zoomify version is up in the site I'll post the link. This needs to be seen as big as possible. The more you zoom in the more the resolution unveils the real deep sky stuff.

Fabulous piece of work. Cassiopeia will never look the same again. And that, I think, is the whole point of deep sky imaging; when we look up we see the Big W but when we look at your image we see what's really up there.

The craftsmanship of this image is exquisite. Perfect. In this kind of project you're in a class of your own, Tom.

Wow, utterly incredible.  I take my hat off to you for your committment in building this masterpiece.  It'l like looking at a Titian or a Caneletto painting; you see more and more the more you look at it.

I can only agree with all the others - incredible amount of work and amazing result!

Perfect reference also for finding interesting objects to image, so thanks a lot Tom for bringing this to the AP community!

What scope(s) and camera(s) did you use?

Unbelievable Tom, the patience, skill and utter determination to compile this spectacular image is astonishing. Every time I see that distorted "W" in the sky, it will remind me of your wonderful image.

Cheers Olly. I m very flattered. 
I had originally planned to do Cepheus, but changed my mind on night one as I was setting up. Guess Cepheus is next 😂
Every pane had something lurking in the data which is great. Blending was as always very tricky. I m surprised about the near absence of smoothing and sharpening needed.

Ha ha thanks Kirkster. 
I saw a Caneletto exhibit in Dublin last year. He was a master at exaggerating building sizes and he even changed the positions of the building in his Venice painting. He must be the original Photoshop king :)
