  1. Quite a spectacular display on last night. First one I've seen in years (thanks largely to NGC - Normal Grey Clouds). All shot at various FL's with 70-200 at F/4. And, a Pano
  2. Fantastic, and that sounds like a huge amount of work.
  3. Not been able to get on and post anything for a while, so, this is a bundle from the last week (mostly) Slight variation on settings (sorry, can't remember the details). Canon 60d, Sigma 150-600@600mm, f/8, mostly ISO100. Stacked in AS3, wavelets in Registax, except the first one, which is a single image (couldn't get the stacking to, well stack). with colour and with colour
  4. Ah yeah, 400d doesn't have liveview. Hope the info helps.
  5. Ant, the 450d does have liveview. At 600mm, I've been using iso100, 1/200 to 1/400 sec, depending on conditions. Spot meter and meter for 2 stops under exposed. Shoot from liveview, continuous shooting, remote release, lock for 40 to 50 frames.
  6. Nice comparison, looks great.
  7. Nothing wrong with Registax, but it can struggle at times (especially with large image files). Try Autostackert 3 or Avistacks... When I was doing mosaics, whilst registax would work, Avistacks would automate 30 or 40 stacks of 1000 frames each.
  8. I had some real issues processing the images from the 7th.. until it dawned on me, that I'd actually shot two sets of images, 30 minutes apart, and the small amount of rotation with the very low moon (couldn't capture any later due to other reasons) meant I couldn't attempt to stack all of them.. Anyway, this is probably only about 7 images stacked. All of them... Stacked in AS3, wavelets in registax 6th May Crop Colour And, then back to normal... 25 of 50 from the 7th Crop Colour Hope you like 'em
  9. 31 stacked in AS3, Wavelets in Registax and a crop
  10. Oh, no wait... it's the Moon... Star Wars day moon, May the 4th be with you. I watched The Rise of Skywalker, then went and grabbed this... Shot through light, fast moving misty cloud. Figured it was worth a shot anyway, seems like it worked. 17 of 51 images, Stacked in AS3, wavelets in Registax And of course... a crop.
  11. 43 images, stacked in AS3, wavelets in Registax 6,couple of minor tweaks in LR and a crop This one feels like I may have made it a little too dark.. thoughts?
  12. I like and use Open Camera a lot. Have you tried the manufacturer camera? Some of them are meant to be very good. Moto Camera is pretty good, but I find it's saves can be somewhat unreliable and lost half the images.
  13. Thanks Craig. Lightroom is very good at what it does. Image catalog (I really need to use it better and start keywording stuff, but never get around to it), and raw processing (it's basically ACR in a full blown image catalog tool). Given that most of my 'edits' are largely ACR style adjustments anyway...
