How do I use Banding Suppression & Threshold

How does one determine what settings to use for the Banding Suppression & Threshold controls? I am using with a ZWO 178MC camera with the suppression set at 15 and threshold at 30. How do these numbers relate to one another? Also when shooting flats and darks should these be set the same as the ligh...

Smart Histogram - Stack Time vs Exposure Time vs Gain?

Robin or anyone, I had been using a DSLR but now have a ZWO 178 mmc and so I am experimenting with the Smart Histogram (SH). In order to use it to it's potential I want to make sure I understand the minimum exposure result and how it relates to the total stacking exposure time. When I recently ran S...
