LMC Large Magellanic Cloud (77mm 5D).jpg
LMC Mosaic, of two frames left and right side of LMC, taken with 77mm Borg astrographic refractor at f/4.3 and Hutech-modified Canon 5D at ISO 400 for 10 minute exposures -- each side is stack of 4 (left) or 5 (right) frames. No processing applied to pre-stitching layered files, just alignment and noise reduction with Noise Ninja. Mosaic created with Photoshop CS3 with Photomerge function -- in comparing it to Calico-created pan, it did not crop more of the image and did not have any residual registration artifacts visible at top in Calico-stitched version. Did have to touch up hard seam with Spot Healing tool. Taken from Coonabarabran, NSW, March 15, 2007.
