IntegrationThis is a mosaic of two frames took with the focal reducer. Each frame was exposed for around 1 hour. Each frame was then preprocessed with IRIS, stacked and stretched with PICTools and some final adjustments with PixInsight LE. Frames were then registered again together and blended in PS.
CommentIt is one of the richest regions in the sky, visible from both emispheres.
