Hello All

The last few clear nights allowed me to finish this project before the arrival of Storm Isha.  This is a 2x2 mosaic of "The Spaghetti Nebula" which lies between Taurus and Auriga.   It's a huge object and the panorama below spans 5 full Moons across by 4 down...

Glad you got (and were able to use) some clear nights at last. That's a fascinating object. :)


Well done Roberto.  As you say it is huge and also very faint.  I managed to get it a few years ago with my Samyang lens.

But 62 hours,  mamma mia!!!! 

This will go in February presentation as l already sent January to Raf.
