This is a large 3 x 3 (9 panel) mosaic of the Andromeda Galaxy (M31) that I produced over the space of a few months. The luminance data forms the 9 panes of the mosaic and was acquired from my backyard. The RGB data was acquired remotely from the AUS-2 telescope at Telescope Live and was adapted to the luminance mosaic.
