Thanks for all this Dave. Now I'm just as optimistic as I was when I first decided to use SC. I will study, take my time, be prepared to get some knowledge outside of SC,, and whip this problem! Carl

Thanks Dave. I have looked far into the Gallery and seen your included pictures more than twice before today. Yes, they do show a lot of progress. You have helped me before. Most recently about May 8th this year: https://forums.sharpcap.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=1628 Some things I learned at th...

"Your writing seems to suggest that I check the bit depth in the "STATUS" tab in the LIVE STACKING section. What bit depth would you recommend for a ZWO ASI 178 MC camera?" (add: capturing nebulosity or arms of galaxies).. Any illumination on this question would be greatly apprec...

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

Your first picture shows the expected stars with no nebulosity and that is how my stacked Fits Lib. picture turns out.
