very nice work, lots of respect for this amount of work!
how much % overlap did you work with? are your stars looking perfect in the corners or did you increase the overlap to take care of this?

Awesome!

This is nearly the exact mosaic I have planned out... assuming I ever figure out what is going on with my FSQ, 16803 and reducer.

Very envious. Very, very envious.

Great job Les. Are you doing this manually picking an appropriate guide star for each panel? Curious to know your workflow on mosaics.
