MS ICE and Moon Mosaic

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have quite a few panes of the moon and if dump them all into ICE I end up with lines were there are to many overlaps, will ICE allow me to selectively add and remove panes ? - or am I going about this in the wrong way ?

regards

John B

I find that with ICE it is easier to make "strips" of mosaic and then assemble these seperately - otherwise ICE can get confused!  If you have lines around the edges of panes try cropping the individual panes before making the mosaic.  Hope these help.

I often crop every frame by few pixel to remove the bad edges from stacking that often confuse ICE or create artifacts on mosaic.

never thought of cropping the frames before it makes good sense to do it though, nice advice!

Absolutely this.

I stack in AS2 and then wavelet sharpen in Registax. I find that Registax doesn't crop the edges even when you use the cropping tool (probably user error on my part though!).  I normally right-click them and use Paint in Windows to edit them...quick and easy.

      Finally got round to using ICE for the first time on this 2 pane mosaic of the full moon from several weeks ago with my Mak and Canon 1100D. Was pretty easy to do and I'm really impressed how ICE does it all automatically. A little blurred but hey, user error... ?

      Hi All. Looks like lunar mosaics are flavour of the month, so here's my offering.
      I haven't done much lunar stuff - more of a DSOer - but clear sky seems to be at a premium so thought I'd give it a go. I'm pretty sure I get blurring at the edges of my full disc lunar shots due to coma, so I wanted to do a mosaic with the SW CC +  3x barlow. But I cant find a way of attaching the barlow to the CC. Any thought welcome.
      So instead I used crop mode with no barlow and did a 24 pane mosaic. DSLR settings:  .MOV files of 60sec duration, ISO100, 1/800th sec exposures. 
      Processed with PIPP, MS ICE for mosaic composite (bit of fun getting it to align - did it in 2 sub-sections) then Autostakkert (best 10%) , Avistack for wavelets (bit overdone maybe) and PS for autolevels.
      Mext move is to repeat with the barlow - so thats 16 panes to each one of the 24 .... ummm, that'll be 16x24 = 384. Maybe not then!
      Hope you like it - looks quite nice full size!
       

       
      ... and the colour corrected one:
