This image is a two frame mosaic; the first frame was shot during the Texas Star Party held at Ft Davis, Texas during the month of May 2015.  The second frame was shot from west of Fredericksburg, Tx in July 2015.  About 30 hours of data was collected to make the two frames.  All of the data was shot through narrow band filters (h Alpha, 0 III, and S II).  Preliminary image processing was done using Maxim DL (camera control, calibration, aligning and stacking).  Final processing was done using Photoshop CS-6.  This included colorizing, sharpening, noise reduction and more.
