My First photo in Getting Started With Imaging Posted October 1, 2018 On 21/09/2018 at 16:47, cjdawson said: That's a great first shot. Keep going! OK, besides the "keep on with what you're doing". Here goes You didn't tell us what camera settings you used. Was it automatic or manual? If manual, I'd shorten the exposure a stop or two. That'll sort out the blown out limb. Next, take lots of shots. I mean 100s. Then run them through stacking software and you'll find that you should end up with a sharper image. For the moon and planets, what people tend to do it make a movie with the highest FPS that you can get (shortens the time needed to make the film) normally about 2000 frames. So it's only a few mins, then run that through a program like Registax. This will have a couple of effects.... 1. lots of frames captured quickly. 2. saves your DSLR frame count Thanks for the advice ( I’ve only just seen your post ) the camera was on manual focus , and was a single shot . .. apart from that I really couldn’t tell you what the other settings were . I’m really keen to start taking photos with my other scope as the dob isn’t really designed for it . Half the “fun” is learning how to do stuff like this . And the rewards are amazing .
