  5. I should mention I was using a F6.3 focal reducer, Im looking for a QHY5 so I can venture into guiding. Hopefully I can pick one up second hand from kelling next month.
  6. Image one is the unspoilt data, Image two after photoshop and three the same image cropped and zoomed. Much better than my first efforts with a bit more experimentation (and knowledge) I think I could do better. Although I still like the Registax image! ahhh ignorance is bliss. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction Rik.

  11. So if I save as 'embed adjustments' and persevere with photoshop I will prevail, Thanks Rik i'll give it a go.
  12. Thanks Rik, do you think I will get better than I have already got?
  13. This is my attempt at the Ring nebula I used 16 x lights 5 x Darks & 5 x flats ISO 800 60 secs exposure. After running the data through DSS the processed image lost nearly all of the colour I had captured in the original data, and no amount of amateur fumblings in PS could cure. What I ended up doing was to convert the RAW images into TIFF and stacked them using Registax this, to my novice eyes seemed to be a much better result. Can anyone throw any light on this? (excuse the pun) Image one (DSS + PS) Image two & Three (Registax)

  15. Would the Opticstar PL 130m be worthwhile or should I hold out for a QHY5?
