Just a reminder on what this Virgo/Coma galaxy cluster mega-mosaic is all about:

Galaxy mosaic small by cybermystic, on Flickr

I actually have the centre frame off to the left, so just need to get the top left frame to finish this one off as far as it goes. Then it needs 3 frames off to the right to get M98, and three frames off to the left to get M59 & M60.
You never know, I might even finish this one in a decade or so :D

Best viewed large. So much going on in there. There's a straight line at the top of the chain, is that a side on galaxy or was there something else a big closer getting in the foreground?

If you don't stop, you might end up doing a 360x360 high res pano of the whole sky. I know, the stuff below the horizon might be a little tricky, but you did say you were thinking of moving... :D

If you look carefully there are three straight lines. These are asteroids :D
