  1. Hello there, I've been through the same issues so far. As a little encouragement, while I'm in the process of further testing the camera for planetary shoots, once I got the exps in Registax the final result was not so bad (in my first and so far only successful attempt), but I'm yet not too satisfied either and want to try more. The original takes looked pretty much like those posted above. At any rate the main issue is that Registax does not like 16bit FIT files -- this has been referred to me by the Registax support itself. I have resorted to use ImageTOOLSca to convert to 16bit tiffs first. The other day, I tried my second batch conversion and found that my temp license had expired, so I've been taking the chance to further see if there are other free alternatives to batch converting these Titan's FITs. Indeed, one person at Atik's support says that Titan (or Capture anyway) should allow saving in 16bit TIFF. I have a question in for them to explain how as I can't see that in the manuals. If anyone figures this out before me, please post.
  2. Thanks for your reply. What do you think of using the QHY5 or Orion Starshooter via an off-axis guider (like Baader RCC OAG)?
  3. Hello, I would like to have recommendations about an autoguiding solution for my C6-SGT. I have also an Atik Titan which I think of using as the pic taking camera (it could be used as autoguider camera too, in theory). My preference would be first of all for an approach that minimizes setup time; necessarily, it has to add a limited extra weight; cost is relatively not so important. Thanks
