Great shots, love the crab shot, lots of detail.
I was amazed at how much processing that took to get that level of detail - at least 3 iterations (something not mentioned in any tutorials or book on PI) of Pixinsight Colour Saturation tool - just shows I need more data.

Re: My DSOs so far this year

OK, so how do I get my images to show here? I was using the [ur l][/u r l] method - is this not correct?

My DSOs so far this year - UPDATED - links fixed

I'm only really just getting into DSO after dabbling for a year or so. There is a lot to learn - I find it much more difficult than planetary/lunar/solar work - so much time to get enough data - a whole evening or more. And I know - a) still not enough data and b) lots to learn in using PixInsight T...

Re: Saving the camera settings in livestacking

Just a bump to ask Robin if this will make it into a new build and when?

Re: Quick question on plate solving

That problem is typically because Sharpcap can't find your plate solving software. I'm assuming you have downladed and installed it? Yu can tell Sharpcap where to find the plate solving software in the settings tab/menus.

Saving the camera settings in livestacking

I now typically use livestacking and its ability to save individual raw frames as my preferred way of capturing DSOs, rather than using capture sequencing - this way I get to see what I'm pointing at :-) Is there any chance you can save the equivalent of the camerasetting.txt file that you get in se...

Re: Can I run SharpCap in windows 10 home

I run my observatory software -Sharpcap, Cart du Ciel, virtual Moon atlas all on a Lenovo X230 - which I think is lower powered than your 330. SC livestack works perfectly well with my ASI 1600 (my usual exposures are between 4 and 32 seconds)- just make sure you have at least 4Gb of memory - mine h...
