[Solved] Cannot get registration
I shot a three-panel mosaic of the heart and Soul nebulae over two nights with my C8 Hyperstar, first HaO3 and then S2O3. The three frames were virtually identical both nights and had large overlap, so I could integrate each night without even needing mosaic mode.
The integrated images for each night look great and very similar (1 and 2). However, when I try to register them so I can do a RGB combine, they just won't comply. Either the stars are very visbly off on part of the image (Image 3, see top of image), or the system creates a ridiculously distorted image (Image 4). I have now just about varied every parameter I can think of, and I get one of these two outcomes, or a variation thereof. What am I doing wrong ???
(this is on both beta22 and 23)
The key here is that you register all data at the same time to a mosaic. So first make the mosaic panels, 3 per filter like you indicate, that creates 6 panels, right?
Then load those 6 panels as lights and register them as a mosaic, that should work and should not create the complicated issue of trying to register previously registered mosaics which is much more complicated.
Were you able to get this working correctly with my workflow?
It's how I usually did it and it worked beautifully again. I won't try registering a mosaic as a mosaic again - I guess the distortions in a mosaic, although slight, are pretty complicated to calculate out 😉
