So I am planning to image a crater of the Moon tonight, but as I have an Alt-AZ mount, the crater moves out of the view in around 3 minutes. This is because of field rotation. In Autostakkert 3, there is an option to set an Image Stabilisation Anchor where the chosen area of the video that is visible in the total video duration will be centred with the other image parts surrounding it after analysing. Would there be any way to stack the stabilised section of the video after analysation to get my stacked crater? Would I also need to use the Field rotation setting to align the images? I plan to record 3 minute clips. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

You said: "the crater moves out of the view in around 3 minutes." I am surprised. Your Alt-AZ mount is not motorized ? If so, it's difficult to image the sky in good conditions and to specify a point of reference in your video for the processing.
