Description

12 Panel Mosaic of Christmas Tree and Rosette shot with the QHY600.
Final stitched output is 17438x33572 but since I finish my edits in Photoshop I had to scale it down to 26000 on the long side to keep under the 2GB and 30,000 pixel limit in TIFF.

Software used to capture image:
Sequence Generator Pro
PHD2
