Awesome job!  I've never tried a mosaic, but this is inspiring.  I might have to give it a shot.

Thanks!

Shooting left-bottom and right-top panels right now.

Autoguiding is not cooperating.. I am pushing the limits of the diminutive AZ-GTi with 6 min subs..

Hopefully, the result will be worth posting..

Well.. It worked but I framed the left-bottom pane not exactly right. Need one more pane.

Not too bad considering my Bortle 9 skies.

General mosaic question - process each stack and then align or stack-align then process?  I want to learn this.  

 

Trying to figure out how to do it in Maxim DL.

stack each sequence separately then combine into mosaic.

One more pane added. Cropped.

Processed a bit differently.

Before, I was was stacking each panel in APP without any further processing and then built a mosaic and then tried to correct for light pollution (in APP).

This time, I stacked each panel, light pollution corrected and then built a mosaic.

I think, this worked better.

This one is the same as above but corrected for star color in APP.
