N.I.N.A. supports paneled shots (e.g. 2 x 2 with 20% overlap). With a small size sensor and a large target I have used this feature quite a bit. Now I'm wondering how do I stack and stitch them together?
Stitching together Paneled shots

For pre-processing, calibrate and stack your panes as normal, one for each filter (if you're using mono with filters). Then to combine, it depends on the software you use for your processing. If PixInsight, here is a great tutorial on Light Vortex Astronomy for registering your images, even while your panes are linear. If you're using software such as Photoshop and working mainly with non-linear images, then you can use Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) to stitch your image together. ICE does an amazing job.

APP has an automatic stitching function for mosaics as well.
