Lovely image.
I'm not sure I understand why you'd stitch fisheye shots. Wouldn't the fisheye get that in one shot anyway ? I guess I'm also surprised that Photoshop didn't throw a wobbly trying to stitch fisheye shots.

Very nice, lovely colours. I love how such wide-angle shots let you see so many celestial wonders...Perseus, Pleiades, Hyades, Auriga, Jupiter.

amazing!

I bet it was stitched for different shades of sky... If you notice, it has three different shades which is what really adds to this shot. I could be wrong, but im sure he will tell us soon!

Thank you everyone for the enthusiastic replies.

SteveinNZ: I habitually make fisheye panos for several reasons. Firstly the distortion and chromatic aberration on this lens is horrendous (thank god they have invented an EF8-15L). By stitching the images together it allows you to chop off the ends and get rid of the nasty soft out of focus twisted to hell parts. The image you see here represents slightly more than 180 degrees, yet there is no barrel distortion. Amazing eh?

CS5 will stitch no problem as long as you overlap at least 25%.

x_tan: About 9:30pm at night, mid December 2010.

04yellowf150: You are very welcome Chad.

Adrena1in: Sadly my photographic friends have no clue. Nice that you see Pleiades centre stage.

Jerk.photo: Thanks for putting the thought into it :), answer is above.

Thank you everyone for taking the time to hit the reply button. Very much appreciated.

Martin :)

Thanks Martin. I might have to have a further play with fisheyes. I like the starscape idea and that technique opens up some possibilities. Thanks for your full answer.

Steve.

This is an amazing shot. I see the large version has four hot pixels, but can easily be removed. As a 1920x1079 background, it really looks good.
