Techno Stuff: 10/29/06 ATK-16hr coupled to Minolta 28mm Lens at F/2.8 piggybacked on LX90 8" SCT, Ha Filter, 5 x 1800 secs, autoguided, darks applied, Binning 1x1, Processed in Registax 3, Photoshop CS2, PixInsight

Notes: This is a straight imaging run up the Milky Way from the constellation Cygnus all the way to Cassiopeia; a distance of about 5500 light years. Each panel of the mosaic (5 in all) is an exposure of 30 minutes using an Halpha filter. Each frame is angled to the right because of the earths rotation.
