General Constraints
#7
Greg,

I have included several attachments that might help explain my confusion. But to put it simply SkyTools 3 lists image size in Pixels and (Frames if DSO object is larger than the imaging system's FOV). However SkyTools 4 shows image Size in Tiles. If I understand SkyTools 4 correctly, this might be the number of camera's FOV shots to encompass the image in question (X times Y tiles etc.). Example; M57 Ring Nebula picture (image #1) was taken with a single exposure. The setups for SkyTools 3 and 4 were as shown in (images #2, 3 ,4, and 5). SkyTools 3 image size comes very close to predicting this (114x114pixels) However SkyTools 4 predicts it should take 62x62 tiles, If a tile is approximately equal to my system's FOV then SkyTools4 says I cannot take a shot of M57 without using many tiles. This was why I asked the question about whether a tile was approximately equal to the imaging systems (cameras) FOV.
