Zooming into Auriga

I made this zoom in series to show the actual size of this object in the sky.
I have placed a white circle, at lover Left corners, in the image series below. It shows the angular size of the full Moon in the sky. Moon has an apparent diameter ~30 arc minutes, that's equal to 0,5 degrees.
Original images used for the zoom in series, with technical data, from top to bottom


  1. At top, a 12 panel mosaic of Auriga:
