I've obtained fairly low HWFM scoring subs using SGP's Framing and Mosiac Wizard (20% overlap) and have run them through to integration.  Following Mabula's instruction on parameters in his great Mosaic tutorial, I've tried to integrate the four integrated files, to no avail.  I even tried to run the integration with higher tolerances and more iterations of LNC & MBB.  How can I understand better what requirements are not being met either in my lights, or in my integration settings?

Thank you,

Dale

As I've carefully analyzed these four integrated panels, I've noticed that my 20% overlap is missing for two of the frames.  I can't determine star matches between them.  They're very close but not overlapping!  Looks like APP tried to do the same thing but failed to see a match.  Chalk this one up to operator error!  Learning...  Must have been when I threw out some frames that didn't meet my FWHM criteria and I had to retake some.  Time to shoot more lights.

 

Thank you,

Dale

Ouch yeah, that's the tricky part of overlap! You can take a 5th panel in the center so that you make sure everything can reference to it (and you'll have a cleaner core of the galaxy as a bonus)

@b4silio,  Thanks for that!  My second Mosaic and I'm learning.  Thank you.
