helped with backdrop

Pat was struggling with a background image in Stellarium.

I encouraged her to review her notes from the level 3 advanced training. Wondered if she had a chance to re-examine the steps documented in the Quick Reference Card.

She had tried some panoramic photos with her smartphone but was not happy with the results. I said I tripod wasn't necessary but grey clouds, an evenly overcast sky was best. She said she'd try again, once the smoke from the fires was gone.

All she'd need then was an image editor. She uses Dark Table. I think that'll be fine.

Reviewed my notes when I tested a single pano from the motorola. Arguably the easiest, fastest way to get a custom background into the planetarium.
