Re: I can't find a stacked image of M27 in my Fits Lib. File

Dave, in closing I will try send you a picture of M42 that I took with my converted (to equatorial) GoTo mount (a Celestron SKYprodogy). It is not a staked picture. It was taken while stacking by selecting TAKE EXACTLY AS SEEN, while using Live Stacking, which gives a very nice color picture. On thi...

Re: I can't find a stacked image of M27 in my Fits Lib. File

Dave, Ive been looking forward to that Tutorial on stacking you mentioned that you would post (I guess) on this forum about Stacking but have I missed it somehow? I recently converted my GoTo mount to an equatorial mount by turning its normal vertical axis over on its side enough to point at Polaris...

Re: Live Stack Mosaic Horse and Flame

Thank you for this great reply. It has certainly warned me that a simple dew cap might not be enough for a lot of places. I have just received from High Point Scientific their "in house" star finder scope for my Celestron Astromaster 130 (five and a half inch mirror) and have not till now thought ab...

Re: Live Stack Mosaic Horse and Flame

Where are you guys putting these dew heaters on? I am aware of dew heaters being applied to eye pieces but are you getting them around the main refractor lens up at the front end of the telescope, or some other places? Carl

How do I get free of the Pro License?

When I applied for my license back in April of this year I read in the information about the process of application how I could cease having or discontinue using it in the future. I can't find this info anywhere now and hope you can inform me of the steps I need to take. I think the stacking problem...

Re: I can't find a stacked image of M27 in my Fits Lib. File

Dave, about this: "Would that stretch button we last talked about have momentarily revealed the 'arms or bands' of m31 or m51? " What you say may be a diagnostic aide in determining wether proper stacking is occurring or not so I look forward to using it when the moon starts to come up after about 3...

Re: I can't find a stacked image of M27 in my Fits Lib. File

Dave, Im confused by what you write here: "This is a good example of information that is no help at all. Remember - a picture is worth a thousand words." because I had just said that I could provide 10 (or any part of that number) pictures to prove that no tracking had occurred when I had every reas...

Re: I can't find a stacked image of M27 in my Fits Lib. File

Dave, today you answered a post I made last night concerning my asking for the default settings for Banding Threshold and Suppression. You suggested that I start a new thread. But I think continuing this one is more to the point as I'm still trying to figure out what my original problem is. The post...
