7 panel mosaic of the Pipe Nebula.

Recommended Posts

This image was taken under the superb skies of the Deepskysafari Rooisand Desert Ranch, Namibia. 

Scope: TS100Q on SW EQ8 mount, asi 071 camera, controlled by asiair pro. I manually framed the panels to match up. The image took me 3 nights to gather all data.

Image resized for data purposes




I'll work on an annotated version, there's a couple of globular clusters and other stuff in there too :) 

Will post a link to a larger size image later, as the original is almost 60 GB large.

Much nicer without the joins.  A great way to check for them before going too far in processing is to look at the mosaic in Photoshop's Adjustments - Equalize. Although you'll discard this image it really does show you any joints and colour changes. It's a brilliant diagnostic tool.

I'm not sure which I prefer regarding the darkness. The darker one is more dramatic to my eye but they are both great.
