  1. Thank you so much for the quick explanation! Really helpful! Yes the sensor size makes sense now! I’ve been doing the entire videoing and stacking process but with a dslr and frankly I haven’t had the chance to actually have some good clips. Mainly just short 2-5 second clips to ‘document’ my first time seeing them! So yes these are insufficient and I’m looking forward to improve! thanks once again!
  2. Hi all, until now I have been using my DSLR to do astrophotography with some pleasing results. But now I’ve decided to have my go with the planets, which I find just as interesting as DSO’s! Jupiter and Saturn look good observing through my 6SE! I get nice detail and moons visible. When I connect my DSLR, in live view, the detail shows up and is quite nice. However when I take a photo, the result is just a sandy coloured blob with no detail and considerable noise. This led me to recently purchase a ZWO ASI 120MC which I believe is a CCD Camera? I was just wanting to know the main differences in between DSLR imaging and CCD imaging in terms of results. I understand that their will be lesser noise but what about resolution? Thanks!
  3. Possible but it's best taking them right after the light frames!
  4. Thank you so much! I'll do it in Lightroom then move it to Photoshop for some Detail Extractor
  5. Hi all, I know this is a very stupid question, but is it fine for the result of a 51 frame stack of the milky way to look all washed out? I heard DSS sometimes does this. How do I fix it!! (If I can ) Thanks! Autosave002.tif
  6. If I were you I’d be safe and buy a new filter. You have many sets of filters available but only one set of eyes!
  7. Hi all, I really didn’t know whether to put this here or in the Observing or Star Party or something forums but here goes. What is the best area in the Exmoor hills to do astrophotography? I know there are quite a few private areas so do you guys know any public areas that are easily accessible by car for observing and photographing the Milky Way? So would need the south direction clear! Thank you!
