Bang the title into Google translate if you are not a Latin scholar……I’m not. I am just a little obsessive….Okay anally retentive….Nerdy….Mad. Take your pick.
I’m aiming for the stars but so far have only found the planets.
This is as good as I could get using a bodge job on the tripod head. I have a job next week that requires a 360 x180 panorama. This was stitched in ICE. A Microsoft freeby It is brilliant. Thank you MARK you came up trumps yet again.
ICE , it maybe a first for Microsoft does exactly what they say it does and in my short acquaintance with it it does it better than ADOBE. ADOBE are a pain but given the power of their editing software they are usually hard to beat. This programme stitched this in the blink of my eye from twenty five images. Yes they were low res. JPEGs but the final image preview was 135+ a bit MBs the final TIFF image was way topside of 500MBs. Has Bill Gates lost the plot? Giving stuff this good away. Man must have debentures or whatever the senile version is.
I know I’m boring you witless but you try being retired. It’s either writing this, going to the pub or drooling in an unbecoming manner over the lass opposite my van. Eyes bigger than my whatsit I have.
I then banged this image into PS Elements 9 and used the Flexify plug in.
After the flak I took yesterday all I’ll tell you unless you ask is that these were shot on Aperture Priority and manual focus. I think I’ve sussed the software…Now for the hardware. I can’t take a zenith shot. That is the one pointing straight up. Nor a nadir, the one pointing straight down. The Nadir is not critical……..YET!!
I vowed to give up the whacky baccy and Pink Floyd. These are the next best thing for me.
Bye for now.
