Orion, Head to Toes

Spanning nearly 25 degrees, this 32 panes mosaic vista stretches across the well-known constellation of Orion, from head (left) to toe (right). Captured with a Takahashi FSQ telescope and STL11000 camera in October 2010

    Absolutely amazing! What do you use to "stitch" the panels together if you don't mind me asking?

    The software I use to post-process (this includes stitching subpanels together) is PixInsight
