Re: My first live stacks.

I know its not good practice to reply to my own post but thought it better as a reply rather than an edit in case anyone had already read the previous one as to the question of short exposure the image of the day from 03/08/2019 is from a 1600mm cool 50 second exposures at unity gain so not massivel...

Re: My first live stacks.

Not wishing to start a lengthy debate suffice it to say everyone has there own opinions and are entitled to them I am just trying to say that simply stating long exposures and CCD are better is not that scientific, also thanks for the astrobin links Cmos 183 images 8 pages worth CCD 694 images 9 pag...

Re: My first live stacks.

Andy cracking images just wish the skies here would clear. I agree with Robin that amazing images can be achieved with CMOS cameras that will compete with CCD and as Robin points out and explains exceptionally well in the talk at this years conference there are pro's and cons for both setups but one...

Re: M42/M43 Narrowband

Hi Brian,
No it's not Hubble it is Ha Red, Oiii Blue and Sii Green with a bit of blue and green added in APP basically to achieve an image that I was visually happy with rather than anything scientific :D as we want to do a print of it for the wall.

Cheers

Re: What long exposures do.

Thanks, I did Ha, Oiii and Sii the other week on the Rosette and have been playing with APP today with M42/M43 so may reprocess my data into a more normal coloured image. Thanks for the info I am under 4.5 skies but there is a lot of housing being built around us so will have to see what happens. Ch...

M42/M43 Narrowband

Hi We had three clear nights in a row last week so as it was work day decided to do one filter per evening, the image below is the result and the specifics are also listed. Bit disappointed that the running man never came out clearer but that could be conditions, the integration time is made up of 8...

Re: What long exposures do.

Nice image I assume that was through an L filter do you have very dark skies as even on minimum gain of zero I struggle with more than 60s on the ASI1600MM Pro when shooting through the L filter not quite so bad with the R/G/B. All you need now is some more clear nights to get more data good luck an...

Re: Ignored images save

Hi Robin,
The separate folder idea would be even better that way it would be easier to scan through them to either decide they are actually good or to use to help diagnose what caused the issue as you could quite easily blink between them with a viewer to try and spot a change.

Cheers

Ignored images save

Hi Robin, I was imaging the past couple of nights and use the live stack feature to see what I am getting as an indicator of the images. I also use the align frames option as an indication of guiding and the FWHM feature per frame in the live stack tab as a good indicator of focus change for tempera...
