Blue Horsehead to Rho Ophiuchi mosaic - 77 hours and 32 minutes total integration
This was an absolute pain to put together. I had a total of 12 sessions in APP due to different cameras, optics, exposure length, orientation, etc. I mixed some stuff from Telescope Live in with a ton of my own data from both here at home and from trips to Marfa TX. All of this integration was taken with the Telescope Live AUS-2, CHI-5, CHI-6, Pentax K5 with Samyang 135 f/2, Pentax K5 with Borg 55FL f/3.6, Pentax K5 with WO Redcat 51, Pentax K3 with WO Redcat 51, and Pentax K3 with Borg 55FL f/3.6.
Wow! Van Gough's Stary Night has nothing on you.
It's an absolutely amazing result. So many sources, each with it's own distortion and coverage. Beautiful image.
It honestly shows how powerful APP is when it comes to this stuff. This one even won the AAPOD for December 22, 2022. All 5 of the AAPOD I have gotten were processed in part at least with APP.
