  6. Help, where to begin?

    Well bullet list for my white light images:- Capture ~150 frames + 20 frames for flat Convert CR2's to TIFF's in PIPP Create flat (I use Registax but other software is available for this purpose) Stack ~50 from 150 frames (AS!3 / Registax) Sharpen in ImPPG Tweak in GIMP There's a great tutorial by Michael pinned at the top of this board.

  13. 20th August - Solar Close Ups

    Got a few of these today in gaps between clouds. Need to upgrade my H Alpha kit!
  14. Calcium FD's and close-ups. A few small proms today but I decided against trying to image them as clouds were arriving in droves!
  15. Early-ish WL disk, hopefully more to come! Looks like a new AR making an entrance at stage left.
