A poster format collection from the Cepheus project

In this collection of my images, the objects shown in a large mosaic of the constellation Cepheus, are collected together. There are indicator lines to show the actual location of object in a large context. As can be seen, I have shot many objects in various focal lengths.

 The Cepheus project was my last published image before the major break down of my imaging equipment.

All images are in mapped colors from the emission of ionized elements, R=Sulfur, G=Hydrogen and B=Oxygen.
