  1. Gina: I have heard a number of astronomers commenting on this program. As for the cost, that is very affordable. Thanks, Don
  2. To all you who have dropped in and left remarks... Thanks. Don
  3. Bryan: I do have a Bahtinov and use it. I would think that having an Stepper Motor Autofocuser would be beneficial as the focus can change with temperture. At some point, I will probably begin to study those that are on the market. Tnx for your tips. Alwasy Forward. Don
  4. Thanks for your comment. The ASA was 800. Don
  5. Well, I imagine there are plenty of solutions for stacking. I would like to see One Program accomplish it all. I use Adobe for all my terrestrial imaging and enjoy how it all integrates seamlessly. It would be good if someone would build an application that Stacks, Edits and finalizes compiled images, that type of workflow is essential. Don
  6. I stacked 10 light frames. I decided to use Photoshop because I have been watching Trevor Joneses training videos on Photoshop. As for Deep Sky Stacker... I cannot run it on this older Mac-Pro which is religated to El Capatin 10.11.6 Thanks for stopping by and your comments. Don
  7. We all have to begin somewhere. I do a great deal of Landscape Photography and some Lunar. But, have not done any Deep Sky photography until a few nights ago. I have been practicing aligning my mount an AVX for weeks and finally decided to try some imaging. Orion Nebula: Scope Stellarvue 80 mm Triple ED APO. Camera: Nikon D800E. Stacked and processed in photoshop. I can see the sensor has a significant cutoff as the color Red is subdued. Don
  8. This image of the Moon on Feb 11, 2020 was shot from behind the house. Scope mounted to a Celestron AVX EQ mount. Moon Waxing Gibbous @ 93% illumination. Scope: Stellarvue 80 mm ED Triplet APO Refractor. Camera: Nikon D800E coupled to a Field/Flattener-Reducer in the Draw Tube.. Exposure Values: 1/500 Sec @ f/6.3, ASA-200. Post Processing Adobe Photoshop LR & CS
  9. Dec 8, 2019 Moon. Waxing Gibbous at 86% Illumination. Telescope: Stellarvue 80 mm APO Refractor. f/6 @ 480 mm. Camera: Nikon D800E. ASA-400. PP Adobe LR & CS6
  10. Thanks for the Tip on (Prism)... I will have to take a close look at this one. Re, Don
  11. Boy... A simple question turns into a Complain-O-Forum. Don
  12. Thanks for your remarks. I have been reading about ASCOM standards and software applications. Regards, Don
  13. Thanks for the detailed reply, I appreciate your inputs. Don
