  1. sometimes if my flats arent powerful enough i will copy layer add a median then apply it over the original image and subtract to a threshhold of 35 pxls it is a RAW file converted to 16BIT and when my screen was turned down in the field i forgot to correct it on photoshop so it looked deep hahahah
  2. thankyou =] it was a [removed word] up on my part i use photoshop cs 6 and deep sky stacker , but i used an artificial flat instead of the actual flat as my files were confused and my gamma on my monitor screen didnt show it up at the time , and realised when i got home , i edited it at 3 am so it was totally me being an tired idiot hahahah im going to correct it tomorrow thankyou xc

  13. Hey guys A lovely night here in north England tonight Temp is 10•c which is good for my camera tonight I put the kettle on and began setting up my equatorial mount in the kitchen and mounted my canon 40d (modded) onto a dovetail mount without te telescope tonight shooting some widefield skies . I went out and gave the camera a good 20mins to cool with the outside and proceeded to click in my 50mm prime I shot 20 light frames , 20 dark frames @iso 400 @10secs f1.8 And then using same iso and apeture shot 20 bias at 8000th sec the pickering was at a minimal tonight with good transparency , At the end of my session out came auriga and m45 pleaides cluster Which got me excited as im dyig to get at that open cluster for its reflection nebula ! As the moon hasnt arrived yet in the sky it was lovely to see some faint milkyway above me as aquila and sagittarius sank and a few hoots from some tawny owls ! Thats all from me ! Hopefully widefield pics to be uploaded tomorrow
