What I meant by "out of phase" was that the frames from different
cameras or the same camera night to night do not have the same
RA boundaries. Take any two TASS image frames and typically you
get only a half frame in common. In other words TASS frames don't
stack well. What would be needed is to re-assemble the frames into
a long strip then cut them on even degrees of RA. Maybe every
three degrees. This is not hard to do. I just wanted to point
out that the current set of images don't stack.
