You saw the first panel of this mosaic the other day.  I found time this afternoon to build the rest of the Mosaic.  Each of the 9 images is a 15% stack from 12000 frames.  The Mosaic was assemble manually in Paintshop Pro 2021 using curves to match the contrast and brightness across the edges.  When needed a circle eraser about 350 pixels wide was used at 40% density to average out any slight mismatch after the curves.

Nice image! Have you tried Microsoft ICE to stitch the mosaic?

No I have not.  Heard of it before but haven't thought to try it.  I'll look for the app and see what it can do.

It makes mosaics as easy as loading your photos and letting it build the mosaic. Sometimes there are artifacts, but it works very well.

You can't DL it from MS anymore, but you can still find the installer. I think this link will work.
