  1. Thank you Space Oddities I've no doubt that the purple halo around the stars is due to my processing skills (lack of), rather than the optics of my scope. I think the SHO process does inherently give the stars a magenta cast and something I'll tackle at a later time
  2. My first real attempt in combining narrow band images from my ASI1600mm cool with the TS100Q. Still a long way to go in both imaging and processing skills, but i guess i wouldn't be doing this if it were easy Ha 33x180s OIII 40x180s SII 37x180s -20deg All pre/post-processing done in Pixinsight.
  3. Target 1_Ha_Flat_3.24sec_1x1_2019-02-26_249.9_-3.fit I thought i would drop this in here as i remember you asking about it...(Ha Flat)
  4. The photo above is facing directly east and as you can see i'm quite enclosed, garage roof and high bamboo in shot with my house roof directly behind. UFO's, plenty of them for sure (Stanstead Airport is 15mins up the road). But, as soon as i get a chance, I'll try out some longer test exposurers and see what results i get.

  6. I've got a TS 100 Quadruplet and its fairly dark here at a green zone Class 4 Bortle according to my Clear Outside app.
  7. Both Ha and OIII lights are 180sec exp, preset is at unity gain, gain 139, offset 21
  8. HA Light Info HA Flat Info OIII Light Info OIII Flat Info I use the Flats Calibration wizard before, but i do set it to 25000ADU. Is this too high?
  9. Yes, its a ASI1600 MM Cool and how do i determine the median background levels of both the sub and a flat (i'm still learning btw).
  10. So, here are the two stacked images in HA and OIII. Both at -20, unity gain and 180sec. You recommend a longer exposure for the OIII?
  11. After stacking my Ha subs in PI (or DSS come to that), the resulting image always looks nice and smooth, but not for my OIII or SII. These always show a lot more noise, just wondering if this is a common occurence?
  12. This is something i wasn't aware of, but will try out tonight...thank you.
  13. I've added my guide log here, if it helps in anyway... PHD2_GuideLog_2019-02-26_191323.txt
  14. Ok, so I’m revisiting this again because over the last few nights of imaging, I am yet again having to hover over SGP and PHD after the focus routine. For some reason PHD keeps losing the star signal immediately after SGP finishes focusing. PHD does pause before the focus routine begins, but when it resumes, I just get the red blinking screen and I have to quickly hit the "start looping" button and the star guiding. Any ideas as to what I can do?
