Milky Way core | Multi Pane Mosaic
Long time user, but first posting here...
Thought I'd share my latest mosaic, shot all in one night (9-7-2021), Negev Desert, Israel (Bortle 3 border 2, with excepetional seeing that night).
Hope you "enjoy the show!" 🙂
12 Panes of 10 Exp. of 120 sec. each.

The assembled "succesful" mosaic:
The usable area crop:
"First light" to test out the image with stretch and basic curves:
You hope we enjoy it? This is absolutely stunning! Great detail, not over-processed, I love it!
Now I connect the dots! 😉
Yes, thank you, I'm very pleased with the outcome...
And AAP makes mosaic stitching a breeze (usualy...)
I did have some trouble with star analysis on a single pane, was fixed by doing it over again.
Now, I have the same problem with another mosaic (Cygnus 6 panes) - hopefully will work it out.
(Working out 5 integrated panes, with the 6th pane individual calibrated lights).
Renewed edition of my 12 pane mosaic
Sometime ago all my Projects files were deleted (raw material was in a different drive)
I wanted to submit this image to a competition so had to remake this image.
Went for a different look this time, less cropping from original file, different process, etc.
Again, APP did a great job on the stitching.
Link to new revision:
Really nice, thanks for sharing!
edit: I say really nice, I meant stunning. 😉
Yeap, guessing I'll be doing some more remakes from time to time due to that mishap, well another lesson learnt.
Thank you, much appreciated!
And thank you for enabling us to fulfill our vision!
