Focus question/suggestion

Sometimes it a struggle to focus on planets when seeing is not great and the edge detection and contrast tools in sharp cap don’t really help that much over just regular visual, I have never used fire capture but read a imagining tutorial that mentioned a feature that continuously live stacked the l...

Re: First go at planetary

Thankyou, seeing was bad enough that I had to guess on focus so was super happy it turned out, I would like to catch more transits, it’s a neat thing to photograph

Re: First go at planetary

Your Welcome Robin, I actually love astrosurface a lot, not sure if I’m missing anything since I’m new, it appears registax has more sliders for wavlets but astrosurface seems to have wavlets and decovolution work together so you can adjust on the fly. Still learning, I processed this last night in ...

It just seems that would make this process so much easier to simply draw a box around the stars you want to use for alignment and stacking, especially for us with small sensors where we may be lucky to have three sta...

Re: Livestack alignment settings

Thought I would post on this thread instead of trying to ask a new question, I attempted live stacking for first time last night but it was a fail, I just found a star field that gave me half a dozen stars that would fit on my 462 with a very long FL scope, I adjusted parameters so I could clearly s...
