First attempt at a panorama made from stacked images. The pano was done in Photoshop using 4 images made from 40 stacked lights with 40 darks each. Taken with a 5DmkIII + 50mm Sigma @f3.2 ISO6400. Note the full res image is 3985×6000 and ~13Mb.

Spica joined by Mars and Saturn.

    How did you prevent the stars from shifting? what was your shutter speed?
