How to do a Night Time Panorama Photo

Overview

This guide will show you in easy steps how to stich photos together which you have taken from the night sky. I take a sequence of photos moving from left to right with 33% overlap of each; with the standard camera settings for Star Freeze (please refer to the related article). After I’ve taken the photos then I use an automatic stitching program to put the photos together.

Software to Use

Microsoft ICE: Software which provides automatic stitching – and it’s for free: http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/um/redmond/projects/ice/

Step 2: And click on new Panorama from Images
Step 3: Select the files you want to stitch together
Step 4: Click on Next
Step 5: And select “Transverse Mercator” on right hand side
Step 6: Click on Next
Step 7: Select Autocomplete (to crop the correct frame)
Step 8: Save Image and enjoy it
