The PoC is a *MUCH* smaller field of view than this, and something I just dont have the kit to image properly.

Congratulations on making APOD

The first words that came into my head when seeing the picture were all expletives.

It's amazing how much is out there that our eyes simply cant see. Thanks you for showing it to us.

I didn't know what APOD was until I clicked the link and saw who was hosting the image.

Crikey, well done!

So, an absolutely stunning image produced by 4 excellent imagers one of whom just happens to be a processing guru.

Imagine if all the talented imagers on here could collaberate on just one image a month.

The bar would be raised so high........

This one was more an ad-hoc data collection, and certainly not planned in any way. Maurice's RGB data is from winter 2009, my large scale Ha data was taken at Kelling in September 2010, my M42 RGB data used as luminance was taken December 2008, Daz's horsehead data was Kelling in September 2010, and TJs flame was ...err... a while back :o. It was only a crazy idea that came to life when I found Maurice's RGB data via a link on Olly's Les Grange website, and realised the FoV from his data and my Ha data were very similar. There was absolutely no planning on this image,it all just happened...

The problem with large scale projects that are actually planned in advance is that the weather knows what you want to do, and refuses to behave. A few of us had plans for large scale HaRGB mosaic collaboration of the Cygnus region over the summer... I think that was the last time I saw clear sky :)
