I picked a mosaic project for the period of the full moon. NGC 7380, The Wizard nebula, Sh-2-142 is a fairly bright region of nebulosity in Cepheus. This is a 4 pane mosaic using the Artemis 285 camera, Astrodon 3nm filter and the Skywatcher 200 Newtonian. The bright Moon compromises this a great deal, but reasonably pleased with the result. Each pane is one nights data. About 20 hours exposure time all together.
