Just a quickie,

I took a shed load of images last night of the moon using my DSLR on my scope with the intention to stitch using Microsoft ICE but its been pulled!

Any free software suggestions for image stitching (not stacking)?

Thanks Mick,

As suspected. When I tried to boot up my installed version of ICE it kept failing saying it's an online resource that can no longer be located so i went onto Microsoft's download site and they no longer support ICE effectively pulling the plug on it and rendering the program redundant.

But I need to stitch for free :(

Hugin is free, but I've not used it for astro work (other than creating a background for Stellarium) so I've no idea how well it might work for you.

I have V 2.03.0 64bit installed on windows 10pro,  I also downloaded the msi from yesterdays post, just ran my installed and stitched three snaps quickly and saved as jpg & tif,  no mention of online resource here..

Alternatives mentioned in that post, good luck.

      Gear Used:
      - Nikon D3300
      - Celestron Astromaster 130EQ
      - T-ring + Barlow x2
      I will explain this as briefly as possible.
      Because I cannot photograph in direct focus with my telescope and camera, I have to use the x2. when there is a full moon, it does not enter the frame, it comes out around the edges, so I think I should make a mosaic.
      The problem is that I do not have a motorized mount, so anileation is critical.
      The problem with PIPP is that it does not correct the rotation of the moon, so it does not work for me.
      I aligned the photos in Photoshop, and exported them in tiff.
      I then moved them to Autostakkert! 3 and it stacked without any problem. Use 40% of the best frames.
      Finally, I use RegiStax6, and when using the waveletes, as seen in the image, it generates an incredibly loud noise. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong, is it RegiStax, is it AS! 3 or is it Photoshop.

      (Errors are clearly seen in the lower part of the product because I do not have a mount, but it has happened to me in other images and the same does not happen with the noise.)
      I do not understand and I am desperate as it is horrible not being able to photograph a full moon decently.
      I urgently need someone to help me. I put all the general details for you to understand, if you need to know more, please let me know. a greeting.

      Hello.
      My name is Luiza, I am a student of Computer Engineering in São Paulo, Brazil and I would like to ask for your help.
      As yesterday was the super pink moon day, I, at about 22:50, decided to take several photos of the moon using my phone and my non-digital telescope. And, analyzing the photos now, I realized that in some of them there are certain objects that I can't say exactly what they are. Could you help me identify them, please? I am not sure if they are satellites, ISS, Hubble, etc ... and I am very intrigued by themphotos.rar.
      P.S: the objects are in the lower left corner of the images
