  1. Thanks adam, if you look at one of the light frames you can see lots of red and blue pixels but I dont know why they are in my image
  2. Thanks Adam, it was only a test of my camera and I only managed 25 subs, would more subs stop the red and blue pixels ?
  3. Here is the link to my dropbox. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/aj8u1tleokryulp/AAARZXn5lWqK0sS69bfCefnUa?dl=0 The top file is where all my lights and calibration frames are in.
  4. If you zoom in to the image you can see lots of red and blue pixels, I had a friend of mine who run it through Pixinsight and he could see the pixels in the image. I streched the dark frames and they looked ok. I did not dither either. I have all the FIT files in my dropbox which I can send you if you like.
  5. I stacked just the light frames and they are still in that image.
  6. I done my flat frames aiming for a value of 28000 ADU i used a tablet, i have tried stacking just the lights but still no good.
  7. Hi all Can anyone help. I just purchased a ASI294MC Pro camera, I tried it out for the first time on my Redcat and a UV/IR filter, from my very light polluted garden (Bortle 8-9) I shot 25 x 180 second exposures at 120 gain and -20, I also shot 20 dark frames at the same settings as my lights i also done 20 x flats and dark flats at 2.5 second exposures gain 120 and at -20. I ran them through APP creating master dark, master flat and master dark flat files also a bad pixel map, once APP done it thing the final image had lots of red and blue pixels in it, I tried stacking them gain but this time I tried sigma clipping but I ended up with the same result I even tried Windsor and MAD sigma clipping but I still had red and blue pixels in my image, even when I stacked just the light frames I still had red and blue pixels. My friend has stacked them in Pixinsight and he gets the same issue.Can anyone help or have I got a faulty camera ? Thanks.
  8. Hi All, I want to make the jump from a Canon 600D to a dedicated cooled OSC Camera, but i dont know what ZWO Camera to get, i have the following Telescope and Lenses. TS Optics Triplet 480mm Focal Length William Optics Redcat 250mm Focal Length Samyang 135mm F2 Lens What is the best ZWO Camera to get ? Thanks
  9. Hi Adam, The reason I want a colour camera is purely the time it takes to shoot a image also the extra money needed to buy the filters.
  10. Hi Adam, I have made my mind up and going for the ZWO183C, like you Saud the smaller pixels will be better suited for my ZS61.
  11. Thankyou very much for the detailed reply, I understand Altair are releasing a cooled version of the 183C hypercam, I was looking at the ZWO ASI1600 is this any good, I would prefer a colour cam. Thanks.
  12. Hi All, What are peoples thoughts of the Altair Hypercam Colour V2, i am looking to replace my Canon 600D with one, i have read some good reviews of the Hypercam, can anyone with one give me some Pros and Cons on this Camera. Thanks.
  13. Hi All Here is my first proper go at a DSO.
  14. Thanks for this, I will be using the L bracket0
  15. Thanks, once it's polar aligned I will have to undo the clutch and move the camera so I can image a certain part of the sky then re- tighten the clutch but won't this know the alignment out ?
  16. Hi, I use my old Nexstar 6SE Tripod as it is very stable, I use the L bracket for my star adventurer as it has the conecter on it for the polemaster, but what I don't know is if I should polar align it first without anything on it or should I put the camera on the L bracket roughly get it into position on what I want to image the polar align it using the polemaster.
  17. Hi All, Please help, i have just purchased a Polemaster to be used on my Star Adventurer can anyone with this setup please give me a idiots guide on how to set the polemaster up and get it tracking. The way i set up my Star Adventurer now, is i do a rough polar alignment then i attach the L bracket then the camera, then i move the camera to roughly where i want to image in the sky, i then do a proper polar aligment, then i fine tune position of my camera, but as you are well aware everytime you want to image something different you have to loosen the clutch and move the camera to a new position and this normally knocks it out of alignment. Can some one tell me when setting up the Star Adventurer with the Polemaster should i go straight in and do the polar alignment first then attach my camera then position my camera on what i want to image ? Thanks
