Re: First Attempt at Moon Stacking

So far, I've only tried it a few times on my 80mm using a ZWO ASI174MM. Seems pretty straightforward but I will be doing a lot more during the summer as well. Most folks who are good at it say the best time to view it is at dusk as the daytime heat makes it hard to get the focus dialed in. I'm going to try my 80mm again but will being trying it on my Esprit 120mm as well. Trick is to get the correct backfocus and ideal histogram with very short exposures similar to the moon. Happy to share results once I have a chance to use it more.
