I was asked to join the Astro Pixel Processing team as a Beta tester for the Astro Pixel Processor product. This will be a new Astrophotography Processing software package, and it has some great features.
I have been mainly testing the Mosaic capabilities, and so far it has been very good at registering and stitching the 25 panes of Luminance for my third project of Cassiopeia.
The result was almost flawless with only some small mis-shapen stars in one small region. The success of the software is that I can stitch the mosaic in Linear format. This will allow me perform many other steps before stretching the mosaic.
Here is a little teaser of what the next Mosaic will look like:
