I had a go at doing a mosaic on Rosette (NGC2244 to be precise) and it didn't go so well!This is what I ended up with and I was hoping someone could offer some tips, I went for 5% overlap and know guiding went a bit stray due to clouds a couple of times. It said it plate solved for each image but I have nothing like 4 panels I could stitch together
Hi thanks for the reply, I didn't use simulators (or not that I know of?!)I don't know why it shows as pink on the forum, I uploaded it twiceI'll try another one - this is what I managed to piece together from it, far from perfect!!
Ah, the frames are really nice, but I agree the mosaic is not very satisfying. Could you attach the .esl file, if you saved it? That will tell us if where the mount was told to slew. Do you remember the settings you used in the Mosaic Tool? You fetched optical information, set overlap to 5%, grid to 2x2 and created the jobs? Did you adjust the center of the mosaic using the mouse?
