Gum Nebula WIP

Now up to 52 panels in the Gum Mosaic.
Each panel is at least 32 min up to 1 hour.
Images taken over last 2 months using every chance of clear sky available, about 20 nights of data in total -sometimes only getting a few minutes and most often with bright moon, plus quite a few more nights just setting up only to watch the clouds roll in and then pack up again.
Estimate still need about 25 panels to finish it off which will be next year now.

Original is at 6 arcs/pix res and 1.5 GB in size. This is scaled down to reduce file size to a more manageable 18 MB:

The thumbnail is a screenshot of just Gum 14 to give a better idea of the overall resolution of the original.

Details:
AzGti EQ modified; 135 mm f/2.8; 2 min subs guided.
ASI533MM Pro with 6nm Ha filter.
Bortle 7.

Mosaic planned in Telescopius & composed in MS-ICE.
