  1. Very good Diy obs...like it. Nice astro images too.
  2. Hehe. Thank you very much John78. Not bad for a vivitar 28 -70mm lens cranked down to 28 and open at the minimum 3.9 fstop. I think the problem with the whites could be that I've done them at the same speed as the lights/subs at 15 or 13s and not 1/4000s the same the darks!! Thx again
  3. I'm still have trouble with DSS I've tried different settings, uninstalled and reinstalled, taken different subs with a differents lens at different iso etc. Im sure I'll get there one day. Ive got a link below with subs, darks, flats, bias. Feel free to take a look if you have a spare 10 mins or so. Thank you https://1drv.ms/f/s!Ar48je62aKSujjlKjPpIDwVie9db Thannks
  4. Hi, Just wondering if anyone can help or point me in the right direction as trying to get the basics for AP. I have taken only 11 subs with darks, flats bias. No problems there. However when using DSS when checking the star threshold at 3% 578 stars are dectected. When I register the checked pictures no stars are detected and the result is just 1 frame out of eleven! Does this mean the other 10 frames have been discarded as they are poor? Do I need more subs and maybe focus better? I have gone through the DSS help guide, other guides and different settings but to no avail . Incidently using canon 100d - 18-55 lens. MF at 18mm iso1600. 11x20s subs - shot in RAW. Attached is one of my subs. Thank you for taking time out to help IMG_0461.CR2

    Is the blurring on the edges of the moon due to scope or camera?
