This is the last post on planets and big panoramas for a while. You will be getting sick of them.
Yesterday Fed-Ex rolled up with my Easter toy. It is a complicated bit of kit. Very complicated, I had to read the instructions. After getting in a right tangle I read the instructions. There are a lot of them eleven pages. Frightened me I can tell you.
I then shot an almost full panorama. 360° x 171° it was and took 99 separate exposures. I shot middle JPEGs. I popped the first lot into ICE and then couldn’t save the image. Took me a while to twig that I had to compress it first……Silly me. It is a massive file. It does save it but obviously to almost everybody but me you then can’t open it. I uttered a few ‘Well bless my Souls!’ Before the penny dropped.
I suspect that Adobe’s stitcher in PS Elements could do it but I hadn’t got a day to wait. It’s a pity they stitch in a different order or I could have a go at blending them together. There will be a way. I’ll sleep on it.
My head is spinning so tomorrow I’m away to Sheriff Hutton near York. I’m hoping there will be Barn Owls and boxing Hares there.
I’ll not be posting tomorrow so have a good weekend.
