  1. here are the 2 test files I received from Nikon Owners Magazine (D5200 and D7100) all ive done to these is increased the Highlights and Shadows to +100 and increased the Whites and Blacks to +50 this was only to highlight the AMP glow in these images. As you can clearly the AMP glow on the d5200 is in the bottom left corner and spreads but faids across the image but the d7100 amp glow is still there but its more evenly distributed across the image having less of an impact.... So disappointed in my self for not going the full hog and getting the d7100 when I was looking but im just hoping the new D7*** series comes out with the Tilt screen and ill jump in for the newer one. Hope this has been informative. D5200 by Ben Irving Photography, on Flickr D7100 by Ben Irving Photography, on Flickr Thanks

  5. Never done this on this forum before but does it have to be on flickr before it can be uploaded?
  6. Hi hope you don't think I'm cheeky but could you possibly try using this program on one of my images and see if it works on a normal photograph??
  7. Gino Arcari Firstly sorry for the long post….. and just to put it out there m mainly a amateur photographer who has a slight interest in Astro so only just started getting around the night sky and imaging it mostly wide field but I do have unlimited access to a Skywatcher Adventurer Mount for tracked stuff any way…. I’ve searched and search and search for a solution then came across this Thread eventually someone else who bothered by the problem. I think its cause it’s not noticeable during normal photography which is my main focus but I have been doing some night time, star and milky way photography lately and that’s where I’ve encountered the problem. Just a few points to add to the discussion hopefully it will shed some sort of light 1. It is in fact amp glow … some previous Nikons were terrible for it and it looks like this model is also one of those. 2. Introducing dark frames does reduce it but doesn’t remove it completely …. (That’s what I’ve found so far in testing … But I’ve only been taking 1 photo then 1 dark with the lens cap on and deducting that) 3. Increasing time between photos doesn’t help at all because it’s there from the first image on a cold night 4. I’ve had someone from Nikon Owners Magazine helping me with my tests and sent me some tests results from a d5200 and d7100 ….. The results are quite amazing….. From a photography point of view I’ve always liked the d7100 but it’s just been slightly out of my reach so as the d5200is so close in comparison I went for that and I like the moveable screen for those funny angles…. Anyhow in summery the Amp glow on the d5200 is prominent in the bottom left corner of images but from the d7100 the amp glow is spread right across the image making it less noticeable to the eye, so for a better night time camera if it’s possible upgrade to the d7100 otherwise the amp glow from the d5200 will always be there, ill try and post 2 dark images later with the amp glow increased so you can see my results. And finally I haven’t heard of or tried the plug in previously mentioned so will be trying that so thanks for that…. I know I’ve went on and on but I hope it’s been some kind of help
  8. Morning all just want to say I attended the SAS Event they had on at Washington last night and it was amazing really busy lots of people and lots of scopes out to use!

  13. Evening all just took deliver of my first telescope a Meade ETX 70! Havnt used or tried it just checked it over couple of minor things ..... I hope!
