Mosaic and Framing Wizard


The Mosaic and Framing Wizard is one of Sequence Generator Pro’s most powerful planning tools. It will literally let you create complex mosaics and get to imaging in just a few minutes. The beautiful rendition of the Perseus region, captured by David Pearson, is a stunning example of what you can create using this tool:

Creating a mosaic sequence is now easier than ever... Simply download the area of interest and then draw a rectangle around the area you want to capture. Sequence Generator Pro will take care of the rest. You will be presented with a clear image showing the number and orientation of mosaic tiles you will need to capture.

Note: The Mosaic and Framing Wizard is an addon to the Sequence Generator Pro imaging suite. In order to use this product, you need to have licensed copy of Sequence Generator Pro. New users of SGPro can receive a 45 day trial of this product as part of the base trial.

Mosaic Panels

Using Sequence Generator Pro's built-in automatic centering, the mosaic pictured here will capture the entirety of M31 with four tiles. You don't need to do any complex calculations to find the center points of these tiles... just draw a rectangle, click a button to generate the sequence and then start imaging.

This mosaic shows what it takes to capture all of M31 with a KAF-8300 CCD and 735mm of focal length.

Single Frame Rotation

You can also use the Framing and Mosaic Wizard to validate proper camera orientation for single tile (frame) sequences. This can help you avoid wasting valuable time under dark skies. This image of IC405 shows, that for this setup (Kodak KAF-8300 @ 735mm FL), 135 degrees provides the ideal framing for this target. When you’re done, Sequence Generator Pro can help you to ensure your camera is at the appropriate angle before starting capture.
