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.

Thank you!

Yeap, guessing I'll be doing some more remakes from time to time due to that mishap, well another lesson learnt.
