IC 2944 Running Chicken

A two panel mosaic taken back in January. I know I'm slow, but I do have a small backlog of data which I hope to process this century. On a modified 6D this would fit perfectly but on an unmodified the mirror leaves a shadow gets in the way. It can be processed out but personally I think it's better to add another panel. It's a little crunchy or overcooked as the SNR wasn't the best. A warm summer night being the culprit. I don't know if he/she is running, jumping, dancing, standing or sitting, but I do know that I'm just happy to be imaging again.

Details:
Bortle 7-8ish sky
130mm APO
NEQ6 Pro (stock)
Canon 6D (stock)
120 x 120 sec (per panel)
ISO 400
APT, DeepSkyStacker, Photoshop

Thanks Anthony. I think it might be my first ever stitch of anything other than the Milky Way. I wasn't sure if it would seam up properly but I watched a video on youtube which helped. Can't remember the exact vid but there's lots of them floating around.
