  1. IC1396 130P-DS DSLR

    Here it is with Rob's Ha data...I like it!
  2. IC1396 130P-DS DSLR

    Thanks. It is modded. Even then I was surprised how faint it was compared to something like the Eastern veil.
  3. IC1396 130P-DS DSLR

    Thanks Rob.
  4. IC1396 130P-DS DSLR

    Thanks. But then it wouldn't be mine I feel a spending spree coming on...

    I was surprised just how faint it was on each sub. The light pollution is my limiting factor, although not that bad, the 600s subs looked a little washed out so I might have lost some contrast.

    Hi This was not easy to process compared to my usual black sky/dso images and it needs way more data I feel. I started out with 300s subs but my guiding was unusually good so I went for 600s. Definitely a narrowband target. 19x600+8x300
  7. Imaging with the 130pds

    Moving the mirror up the tube, by replacing the mirror cell screws with longer ones and using threaded spacers, is also an option. It's reversible. No hacksaw required, just a bit of nerve to dismantle the mirror cell.

    There is some helpful advice in this thread...
  9. Bias as Dark Clarification Please

    It does sound impressive.

    To be fair, I think the much-maligned DSS is VERY clear about how it uses the control frames. Do any of the other programs provide clear diagrams explaining what the operations are depending on the supplied frames? To be fair, that was only in response to why I didn't use the preprocessing script in PI I agree DSS is very clear.

    My head hurts...

    Like Olly, I like to know what's being used for what. Oh and I am a control freak!
  13. Bias as Dark Clarification Please

    Thanks. I didn't know that. Wouldn't the principles apply to whatever software you use?

    So..... What would be the ideal usage of the calibration files? In PI you can also specify what you want it to do with any particular file. (I don't use the batch script) If I use a master bias for a dark for my lights, I then leave the bias box empty? And would it make any difference to using it in the bias box and leaving the dark box empty, as I currently do? And would the same apply to the flats calibration? (pretty sure I know the answer to that is to try it and see )

    Are they temperature dependent? Providing I get the exposure time the same, could I make some now for previous flats?
