Lessons Learnt

Trying a new bracket merge algorithm, seems to work better, but still room for improvement, especially regarding ghosting. Again this image suffers from ICE image stitch errors, which seem to be particularly bad across brackets, as if ICE changes the stitch for different brackets, even though it shouldn’t be.
