    CGX Noise

    It's been quite a while but I think this was the post that helped me solve my problem. https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/584026-cgx-l-noise-vibration-issue/?fromsearch=1
  2. 100x60second exposures. The subject was inching towards the Las Vegas light bubble so there's an issue with that at the bottom of the frame. 12/16/2018 Canon 5D MarkII, Rokinon 24mm 1.4, ISO1600, 60-second exposures, tracked on iOptron ZEQ25 mount. Individual frames processed in Lightroom, exported as TIFFs and stacked in Sequator, final tweaking and crop done in PhotoShopCC.

    46P/Wirtanen and M45

    Not that I could find in the program or manual.....hince the comet trailing. I really like the program though for regular stacking.

    Comet 46P/Wirtanen 12 December 2018

    Excellent image! I'm hoping to capture it again tomorrow evening while near M45

    Firecapture RGB auto run

    I'd love to hear the solution to this as well. Trying to do the same thing. I see how to set a delay between filters but not between groups of RGB sets.

    CGX Noise

    I found a post on another forum that talked about this problem. Apparently, it's very common among the CGX and CGX-L mounts. I made the adjustment recommended and that seemed to solve the problem. Now I just have to wait for clear skies to see if that adjustment has affected tracking and/or backlash.
