    Thanks I have changed my approach to it and it seems to be working, rather than do everything via teamviewer I save the RAW data and transfer it to my main computer then work on it on there the resulting image is a lot better than when I try to process it over teamviewer. I think the one monitor needs calibrating

  5. Had a go at a GIF

    I done a time lapse on the D500, then I took a final image with my son in it, then I merged them together in PS. Never done it before it was all trial and error and youtube vids

  10. what could be causing this?

    sorted now thankyou
  11. Havnt used my scope for over a week (permanent setup in small obsy). Went to use it last night everything started up fine ( EQMOD, SGPRO, CDC), anyway I slewed to a star and then copied the co ordinates from CDC and entered them into sgpro as usual then I just click on sync in CDC so I know im in the right ball park. Last night though for some reason after doing this then finding an object (M81) after taking a couple of frame and focus shots for some reason the bullseye in CDC has gone to the bottom of the map? the scope hasnt moved but for some reason CDC thinks the target is right at the end of the map basically bottom middle of screen. I diconnected everything and tried again and same thing happened, the third time it seemed ok, so any ideas as to whats happened as I havnt done anything different, only thing I can think of is the computer may have updated or something

  14. binning

    last night was a clear night and just had to do a bit of imaging I was getting withdrawel symptoms, everything told me not to go for this with the moon out but I have always wanted to try it and glad I did, ended up Lum 10 secs RGB 60 secs with the ZWO 1600 on HDR, (I also done Ha dont ask me why just did but didnt try using it in the final image). dont think it turned out to bad even tbh
