Re: Flats

Did a few more investigations on this last night. To begin with, I tried using Astro Live, and performed a flat capture on this (10 averages), which worked fine, and after applying the flat, none of the effects shown in sharpcap occured, and the image was lovely and flat afterwards.

Re: No alignment found!

Hi Robin,
Last night was finally a clear evening, and I managed to try stacking again but this time using Sharpcap 3.2

Thank you again for your support :) !!!
