Second time I undertake this kind of endeavour. Many many movies were shot. Over 300Gb of data. Stitching was done by hand. in adobe Photoshop.
CFF 300f//20 cassegrain
ASI174MM with Astronomik proplanet807
processing using Autostakkert, lynkeos and adobe photoshop.
Image is a wee bit too large to add to post direclty. hence just the link.
Make sure to check out at full res.
A bit of an odd one aspect ratio wise, but fun to put together - first light for my new ASI294MC OSC and technically my first experimental attempt at a mosaic!
My first stab at using the camera meant I went for 30 second subs, I need to experiment more to settle on my ideal sub length...still, the results are decent for a low integration time of 1.7 hours.
I love the Orion constellation and if I had the skies and time, I would mosaic the whole thing, but failing that, I can do bits and pieces! Orion's Belt is amazing to me, the three stars, Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka, very distinctive in the night sky.

The Tadpole Nebula and the Flaming Star Nebula captured over three nights of the unexpected nice weather we had a couple of weeks ago.
A number of firsts with this image:
1. My first mosaic - keeping it simple with two panes!
2. First time I left my imaging rig outside... (I used a telegizmo cover) and it was perfect, allowing me to get imaging very quickly on each night
3. First time using powerful scripting tools in my capture software, APT, to move to the second pane and starting imaging automatically...worked really well!
APP was used for pre-processing and stitching the mosaic together, while Pixinsight was used for image processing. A total of 10.9 hours integration time.

Hi everyone. So I'm looking to do some form of mosaic over the weekend.
Is it better to stack in mosaic mode in DSS or merge in photoshop?
And is there any other advice for me as this is mainly a learning evening for me so any tips would help.
Also do I need just 1 set of calibration frames or a set for each part of the mosaic.
Hi, although Ive been doing lots of deep sky imaging Ive not really done any serious lunar imaging at all. Here is my first try with ASI1600MM-C and 12" f/10 Meade SCT on EQ8. I took 4 panels with 850nm IR pass filter, 20 frames stacked in each panel out of 500.
Image is quite large, at 1:2 scale out of the original. There is plenty of intresting details around Mare Crisium. Unfortunately seeing wasnt stable enough the top panel would be as sharp as the rest is. Still Im quite happy with the results.
