  1. Thanks for the info, looks like I've been a bit of a div in the understanding of "Stopping Down" and went to the other end of the scale. next time I'll try the other end. Well you dot find out unless you ask, thanks for the help
  2. I took some photos of Leo last night, just using the camera on tripod (Canon 1100d, 18-55 lens, 18mm at F22), 30 shots at 30 sec a piece. What would be the best stacking program for these? I've tried DSS and it doesn't seem to want to do anything with them, can only read 20-30 stars. any advice would be appreciated. thanks Sully
  3. No its windows movie maker file, bit of a nuisance to convert but i've managed to get to AVi now but registax still wont take it?
  4. sorry to keep harping on about this, but how can i convert wImp file to AVI to enable me to import to registax? can it be done?
  5. I have two AVI files in 30min segments, from 2 different cameras, but im struggling to get them down to a manageable portion, the 2mins in question. Registax wont load them for some reason, I take it that its because of the size, what do you reckon i should use to edit down to the 2min required? by all means you can have a go if I can get it down to a manageable size.
  6. I didn't really know where to put this question so its ended up here and not very Astronomical, Sorry. Does anyone know how i can stack CCTV images so i can read the Reg plate of the van of the guy that stole my sons bike? Can i do it with registax what do i have to convert it too?
  7. Sorry to but in, but where can I download 3.3.4 cause I can't get my pictures to display properly in the current version
  8. Thanks for the advise guys hopefully might have another go tonight, sky's permitting!
  9. I've been trying to load in some Raw images to DSS but when i preview them its only showing a thin vertical portion of the image, whats going on?
  10. Yes I'm using a remote timer and the camera only 18/55 lens not attached to scope. 20 sec at iso800
  11. I've Just been out trying to get some images of orion constelation with my 1100d, but the shots just seem to be blackouts, is this just a beginners error somewhere along the lines? I've set the camera as detailed in the timer manual but dont seem to be getting the results. Can anyone help, What should i be setting the camera/timer to do?
  12. Funnily enough it was piling sands that was giving the 5.1 still got to get up there to have a look. I'm a bit dubious though cos Heysham power station is light up like a xmas tree.
  13. i've been trying to reccy out a decent dark sky spot near me, and living near Blackpool that aint easy! But i have managed to find a spot that scores a 5.10 on the "http://www.need-less.org.uk/" sight. How do your spots compare?
  14. The choice of Mount was going to be my next question, I was thinking an HE5? When I have a go at the AP I use either a spc900 or 1100d, so does the 130pds and HE5 sound ok?
  15. Given the respective merits of the 130pds and the 200p, which would you choose if you were given to occasional veiwing and AP (mainly winter)
