    The "No EQ" DSO Challenge!

    Ah ok, there's always another accessory with this game isn't there thanks for that.

    The "No EQ" DSO Challenge!

    I've looked online but the only topic seems to be about observing, I'm more concerned about sticking my camera on it which I haven't yet or cant but feel it's not going to be any different. Something almost a mile away surely is classed as infinity?

    The "No EQ" DSO Challenge!

    Hello all , I picked up a wo 72mm megrez yesterday. It's a lovely looking thing but I'm a bit concerned. Now it's too cloudy to test it on stars but I cant achieve focus on an object close to a mile away. I've never played with a short tube refractor before. Is this normal?

    Cropped and messed with in the free photoshop app. 9.25 sct @ 6.3 . Nikon d5300 iso 2500 90 exposures of 30 . Stacked and stretched in astrotoaster.

    Also I was thrilled to see my first glob. It looked great through the eyepiece.

    May aswell throw this one in. Same set up but had some stellarium issues, it went wrong and sent the mount mental. Anyway will try this one again with way more than the 5 exposures I did here and better framing ect.

    Thanks. Think I'll have another go tonight if weather permits.

    About 90 30 second exposures. 9.25 @6.3 . Stacked and stretched on the fly in astrotoaster. I'm still not sure if the way I use astrotoaster qualifies for this thread or the eaa.

    First time seeing a glob. M13 I only stacked 5 30 second exposures. Not sure if the 5 was better than the 1 but hey ho.

    That makes sense to me now.

    Thanks. I can stop wondering what if now.

    I dont mean numerous exposures but copying the same exposure many times.

    The "No EQ" DSO Challenge!

    Well I was thinking more like copying numerous 30 second exposures. All I can come up with is maybe a raw cant be copied with the same qualities but I've never tried.

    Hello all. This is probably a stupid question but it's one that's been nagging me. If stacking is to increase signal to noise ratio what's the reason we cant take 1 exposure , make numerous copys and stack them, or am I just making assumptions and we can? Thanks.
