    Hi thanks for the tips, Those images look brilliant. When you do your flats do you put your flat dark into the dark slot on calibration?

    Yep I know what you mean. Ill try and get some more next session but the big problem i think is not getting flats to work.

After all the problems I have had with Flats I did this image without flats, although its better Im still getting patches of bright glowing areas but not as half bad as they are with flats. Anyway here it is hope you like. Hints and tips welcome. Thanks for looking

    Hi sorry for late replies, have been out trying to get Sii data for this and have had another go at getting flats. As Vlaiv said the ADU was a miss print its set to 18000.

    Yep, you seem to be doing the same as me except that I aim for 180000 ADU.

    Nope, all dark till I start packing away. on the flickering light thing, you may have something there. Ill have to look into that.

    Flat darks are done at the same time I do flats, end of session so all temps should be good. Not using any bias frames. Dint think they where any good with the ASI 1600. I find that any exposure of less than 5s can be very inconsistent. Especially when taking flats. I get all sorts of different brightness then.
