My first attempt at doing a gigapan of the night sky. This fails for two major reasons. First, there is no horizon to calibrate the gigapan, so the image might not have stitched properly. Second, even on a clear night with bright stars I have no good reference points to determine if the gigapan is seamless or repeating elemnts. The moon is the only good reference point in the picture, but due to the long exposure times to capture the stars, the moon appears much brighter and fuller than it really was. That night the moon was barely a crescent.
