This is a highly compressed version of the 100MB final image I got last night using my Meade 8" LX90, 2X barlow, Canon T3i and BackyardEOS.

It's a 21 panel mosaic. Each panel being made from 1000 video frames, stacked the best 55% in Autostakkert3, then stitched the individual frames together in I.C.E. 

The stitch was then slightly sharpened in Registax6 with final processing done in GIMP and Paintshop Pro 7.

 

I still have a few things to try with stacking and processing, but I'm pretty happy with this first run-through.

Special thanks to Tulloch for his pointers in using BYEOS!

Yes, very nice. But what program is "I.C.E."? Not familiar with that  one, thanks!

 

Again, nice work!

It's Microsoft's Image Composite Editor. Great for stitching mosaics together. Unfortunately, you can no longer download it from MS, but I think you can find the installer here...

And thanks!
