from Sagittarius to Cassiopia

I have been waiting all year for this night... a new moon night with clear skies in the summer time in Florida is very rare!

It took me a full day to assemble this panorama.The TIFF file is over 2GB in size! The panorama is 6 panels vertical. Each panel is 3-4 images stacked and calibrated with bias, flat and dark frames. Each image in the single panel is 30s ISO1600 f/3.5. After calibrating and stacking all 6 panels individually, I then merged them together with PS CC. Astro Pixel Processor was used for calibration and stacking.

Manfrotto 190XPRO
Canon 6Da (astro modified)
iOptron SkyGuider Pro
Tamron 70-200 G2

Images: 30s each photo, ISO1600
Total stack of 22 images. Each image was calibrated with darks, flats and bias frames before stacking and photo merging.
