    Default panaramic to get moon fully???

    ok so it is still cold out so no real time to play around..

    now with my t-ring and 2x barlow adapter.. im able to take pics of the moon.. yay...

    however before i had to crop in to get a zoomed pic of the moon with my 55-250mm lens... on a 1.6 crop...

    now with my telescope, 2x barlow adapter (needed to focus)... I cant fit the moon entirely in the picture.. so that is good but bad..

    so guess one needs to take multiple pics of the moon and stack them like you would with a panaramic?

    any suggestions? software to use? etc???

    this was not cropped at all.... lightly modified by LightRoom...

    im also contemplating buying a 1.5x barlow... and if make sure it comes apart... i can fully take mine apart.. if i can take the lens out of a 1.5 i could put it into the case of this one and then not have such a reach...

    anyone have a bad, bent, broken 1.5x they would like to drop in a 50 cent envelope? ill send ya a buck???

    You stitch them like in a panorama... it's called a mosaic...

    You need about a 20-25% overlap with each frame on each touching edge - you'll soon get the hang of it.

    Important that (as with panoramas) that the exposure (shutter/aperture/ISO/white balance etc) does not change across the shots - your camera should be in manual mode anyway so probably not going to be a problem.
