Mosaics - any guidance

I'm intrigued by objects like Simeis 147 - a huge supernova remnant that is far too large for even my hyperstar so it's time to learn a new skill - mosaics. Are there any resources out there - idiot's Guides to Mosaics sort of thing?

I use the free camera software canon autostitch with good results on DSO's & the moon. I have mentioned this before in the forums , it's simple to use after adjusting the focal length settings (these bear no relation to the real focal length) & scanning settings . These are easy to experiment with as the actual combination of pictures into the mosaic takes a few seconds. It's ridiculously simple to use and any artifacts can be removed in Photoshop . If you want to see some examples I can email you them.

If you don't mind the money, AutoPano Pro.

autostitch is based on the same algorithms, but lacks some of the sophistication.

If Eric doesn't mind I can make available the AutoPano version of his Weribee Gorge mosiac. The 2777x1508 16-bit PNG version is 23MB. The full size is 340MB. A reasonable quality JPG is 2.3MB.

That sounds interesting but that link didn't work for me.

Is there a way to get a copy of it?

Would you mind emailing it to me?

Greg.
