Wrong camera angle -Ooops!

Recommended Posts

My own fault (I was the only one there so can't blame anyone else 🤫).

I woke about 3 am this morning and looked out on stars 😀, so down stair open the obs, grab a coffee, down to business...

I did a quick frame/mosaic sequence in SG Pro covering the area between the flame and M42 - 4 panels. I set-up to do 4 x 120s subs per panel to see what I'd get. Trouble was I miss judged the rotation on the top panel with the flame neb - set the sequence going only to come back 20 mins later to see that they were rotated by a long way. Let the sequence finish the 4 panels, closed down and back to bed...

Because of the rotated frames I've had to heavily crop the image each side. Must try harder (heard that somewhere before!)

Great image. Can’t wait to try this in SGPro. Still trying to work it all out.

I found it hard work having to scroll my browser window to enjoy this superb image. So I applied the sum total of my image processing skills to fix it! :)

Hope you don't mind but I'm in love with your image!
