    Thanks for your comments guys. I see AR2712 is on it's way round the corner (if there are corners on a sphere) hope to give it a go in the next few days.

    Only just got round to processing these from Friday. Clouds here today at the moment but may get a glimpse later on if the weather man is correct.

    Proms + poss new AR 12-6-18

    Nice set Charl. Yep there is a new ar on the way showing some detail in WL. How did you enjoy the GP? I almost fell asleep!

    Imaging just keeps getting more complicated!

    Press "shift" and then click on the connect icon and it will save you having to select "on cam" as it will automatically select everything you had connected before.

    Drift Alignment

    When you say "for the first star alignment" I'm not sure what you mean as to adjust azimuth you pick a star due south at Dec 0 (which you say you did) and do the adjustments on that. Once the adjustments are done and you no longer have a V shape you are done in AZ and move to a star on the horizon for alt adjustment. Your comment about first star alignment (when you say you are only doing azimuth) is therefore a bit confusing.

    Sun Ha Work from May 28th UPDATED

    When using ImPPG (I use it for all my solar work and find it gives better results than other sharpening tools) I think you would get much better results by reducing the iterations to ~50 and keeping Sigma well below 2.0. Give it a go and see what you think.

    Stick with it John, you'll soon get the hang of the settings. I think ImPPG and no sharpen or high pass filters will give you the better results. It looks like the PS stuff is oversharpening and showing some noise. I assume you have a VERY low gain setting during capture so the initial unsharpened image should be pretty much noise free. What ImPPG settings do you use for your surface shots?
