  4. Am gonna change the Lodestar and see if that makes any difference, this one is the superstar, I have an older one I can try when I get round to it

  10. Another NGC7000

    sorry I am not that good this was just using a different older computer that i usually process on, not star masks, sadly, not tried that yet. I now have to find out what makes the new computer produce duff TIF files when maxim settings are identical need a good geek i think
  11. Another NGC7000

    well it appears to be the computer .... i just processed on my old one and all the odd stuff disappears. although this was only a quick process. I have no idea what my other computer is doing different, all setting in maxim are identical on the stacking and combine but i get vastly different TIF files. Unfortunately I am no geek so dont know where to look. The FIT file combined looks OK but the TIF is awful on the windows 8 one and both look great on the windows 7 one So will use the old machine until i can figure it out
  12. Another NGC7000

    i am wondering if something went wrong in the stacking here, will have another go at it and see what happens. May have made an error in the setting ? Olly I have never used star masks or anything like that .... i have a lot to learn but not many places to learn it from being a bit of a luddite
  13. Another NGC7000
