We will align our seperate mosaic panels to a generated image of stars. This often produces the best final result for a mosaic that has more than two frames.
Catalog Star Generator Script
Launch the catalog star generator script, which is located under Script – Render – CatalogStarGenerator.
To generate the catalog of stars, we use the information we obtained from the image plate solver script. This will include the Right Ascension, Declination, Rotation, and Image Resolution.
We can also add the Dimensions of the image based on our calculations we obtained from the Image Annotation script.
If the magnitude of stars is too high, the image might fail to generate. In that case, lower it until the catalog generates.
Once the process completes, you should have a new image containing stars
Save this file as we will use it in the next step to align our panels to the star catalog.
