  1. 1.25 and 31mm may be practically the same on a tape measure but the Astrodon 1.25 mounted filters have significantly smaller area than the 31mm unmounted versions due to the overly large metal frames on the 1.25. In imaging terms I guess the steeper the light curve the more this impacts on the image. Dave
  2. Very pretty Gav, don't feel bad about it, I've got stuff from 2 years ago waiting to be looked at Dave
  3. Must be something missing in the DSS file header, didn't do any processing as such just stretched and aligned in P'Shop, didn't even put them in the right colours May give it another go if I get a moment, got a load of images of the Tadpoles last week that I'm only just getting around to. Dave
  4. Got one of those unhelpful messages from Maxim, didn't try CCDStack, I think it maybe because they're DSS 32bit I changed them to 16bit for P'Shop. Dave
  5. Just put them in P'Shop and aligned channels, stars look better, ignore the funny colours, doesn't look like PI aligned them properly, need a PI expert. Data looks alright so should be able to extract a decent image. Dave You can see from the top edge that they weren't aligned.
  6. Software complains that Tiff files do not have embedded greyscale profile whatever that means. Dave
  7. Never used PI but the colours don't look lined up. Dave
  8. Worth investing in one of these. Dave https://www.firstlightoptics.com/sky-watcher-mount-accessories/lynx-astro-ftdi-eqdir-usb-adapter-for-sky-watcher-eq5-pro-heq5-syntrek-pro-az-eq5-gt-az-eq6-gt-and-eq8-mounts.html
  9. Best to get it all working indoors, you don't want to be messing about in the dark or wasting clear skies. Good luck. Dave
  10. You might find this useful once you get going. Dave
  11. The white cable it for ST4 guiding, you don't need it for pulse guiding, this goes via the handset. Dave
  12. Not April the first is it Cloud here, rain coming. Dave
  13. I've fitted a USB fan in mine moves plenty of air, my roof is well sealed as it's the original Keter shed bolt down, bit of gap round the doors. Dave
