    Wow what a difference - I've got a lot to learn lol, looks 10 times better. The vignetting is probably just the lens it's great in the daylight at f1.4 on my camera with no noticible effects but have no way of stopping it down using my asi174. I didn't use any filters not got that far yet colour wise im not sure which settings to use in sharpcap I set the camera to rgb24 not sure if this is correct. Will check on the pictures tommorw . Thank again Phil

    Thanks Steve yes took a while to get good focus on the lens only the slightest movement without hand shaking it' a lot easier in daylight with auto focus, and agree with you about the help on this forum it's invaluable.

    Hi Thanks for that will do when I've worked out how to do it something else to learn haha.
  10. Finally after 2 years of struggling to get all things to work at the same time (including the weather!!) I managed to get a picture that I am pleased with although it wasn't what I originally tried to capture the roof of my house took care of that. When I first started down this frustrating hobby (2years newbie) I never realised how much of a struggle it would be to get anything worth looking at as there is always something packing up or user error, pa, software problems, clouds, laptop, leads, mount, camera the list goes on and on. Anyway rant over please have a look and advise on how to improve especially in the processing department any comments good or bad welcome. Forgot to add equipment used Heq5 pro, zwo174mc, sigma 85mm f1.4 - 30x4s, 30x8s, 30x16s stacked and bodged in DSS. Thanks Phil stars2.TIF
