  1. Certainly! After aligning the frames in ICE I adjusted the curves to brighten it up a little bit, after that I used the UnsharpMask tool to sharpen the surface features. I also added some black space to the right of the moon, it just didn't look right to me cutting off a part of the moon even though that half isn't visible.
  2. I have heard good things about ICE but somehow I always thought that it was something you had to pay for. I just downloaded it and it works like a charm, thanks for the advice!
  3. Recently I bought a ZWO ASI178MM for planetary/lunar/deep-sky imaging and last weekend i had clear skies so I was able to capture videos of the moon in two panels. I have already processed the videos in AutoStakkert, I used 3x drizzle because I intend to print the image so now I have two 120MB TIFF images that i would like to combine in a two panel mosaic. I tried doing it in Hugin, a free panorama stitcher but the program crashes due to the file sizes being too large. I have searched for tutorials on using DynamicAlignment in PixInsight but it seems to me that i'll need a reference image to be able to create mosaics in PixInsight. Is there any way to go about this, I feel like this should be a pretty straightforward job but I am not very experienced in PI so I would really appreciate some advice. I tried using DynamicAlignment as you can see in the attached screenshot but the result was just a cut version of the target image, aligned perfectly to the source image. It would be perfect if it didn't cut off the lower part of the target image.
