A mosaic of the center of our home galaxy using 14 panels with a Rokinon 135mm f2 lens and Nikon D5300 h-alpha modified.

Unfortunately, not a perfectly clear night, and so some panels had slight cloud cover, hence a difficult job in stitching together. But a very good practice for my first mosaic.

14 panels
2 subs x 1 min at f2 iso400
Rokinon 135mm F2 lens
Nikon D5300
Advanced VX mount
ST80/QHY5L-II Guiding

Calibrated in dss
Stitched in msici
Pixinsight: dbe, star masks, star reduction, lots of curves and histogram, remove green and thats it
