Hi Richard, I would recommend having loads of overlap for each panel. Make sure you have the scope well on band otherwise you will get a lot of blurring.

Awesome image, lots of details. What size is the image, could not fit it all on the screen?

Thanks for the info. The number of pixels is almost 3 times more pixels that I have on my full disk images.

WOW, huge and detailed, i read 9 panels but then saw that you use also the huge sensor camera Grass Hopper Express.

did you capture the prom in the same exposure?

Thanks guys, just got back to this thread.

Paolo, because the proms were so bright for this image I used that same data and then just used shadows and highlights to recover them when processing. I did this via a mask but I did take data just in case the proms were not bright enough.

The linked image is not at full resolution too. This image is about 80% of native resolution. The larger sensor makes for huge images and covers lots of ground quickly which is necessary for large resolution mosaics. Otherwise you end up with lots of blurred sections.

Glad you guys liked the image.
