  1. Hello I am experiencing difficulties getting registar to open my stacked tiff files, it will open individual subs but wont open the stacked processed file, i keep getting this error message. Unable to read TIFF file. Please ensure that the file has not been created using a proprietary compression scheme. i just save the stacked file as a tiff as per normal. any Ideas?
  2. THANKS WIMVB, DIDNT REALLY UNDERSTAND MOST OF THAT AS I DONT HAVE PIXINSIGHT, HAD AFEW SCOPES NOW, MY SWED80 IS FOR KEEPS SO CAMERA WITH A LARGER CHIP IT IS! IS THERE A TRAIL VERSION OF PIXINSIGHT?
  3. true cant speak highly enough about the 314L+ highly enough coming from a dslr, although need a bigger chip now. although so many other CCds out there which im sure are great!
  4. thanks for the comments @barkis it does look smoother, but it seems hard to get rid of noise whilst keeping the image sharp.
  5. thanks, im finding it a struggle teasing out abit of sharpness whilst keeping the noise down??
  6. Hello First image on here for a while, after abit of a struggle with RegiStar finally got everything loaded up. Taken 2 nights ago with SWED80/reducer/Atik314L+, data as follows L-90 mins binned 1x1, red 18mins, blue 20 mins, green 16 mins binned 2x2. Great camera the Atik 314L+ but i think i need a larger sensor now. Welcome any constructive criticism, i learn alot from it.
  7. File: C:\Users\Dunc\Desktop\registar test m45\lum\Autosave.tif Unable to read TIFF file. Please ensure that the file has not been created using a proprietary compression scheme. comes up with this?
  8. saved it as a tiff as per everything else? iv just run the whole folder through it will accept single subs, going to take a while though.
  9. my 2x2 binned rgb opens but my stack lum wont??? individual subs open fine?
  10. ok think im understanding it now any ideas why registar wont open my stacked lum??? wont open.
  11. Hello I downloaded registar a while back im abit confused as to how to use it properly, I process my lrgb separately in photoshop then load all 4 files into registar then try to run them through the program (im assuming this aligns them?) Am I then supposed to save them and go back to photoshop where they will be aligned? Im a bit unsure?
  12. Can the shoe not be directly mounted to the focuser itself?? That's a naff design if not?
  13. Hello iv recently upgraded my ed80 focuser but there is no shoe on it? What one do I need to get to fit, as I intend to use a finder guider on it?
  14. I'm using an ed80 and reducer atik 314l+, will just bIn the rgb 2x2. See how it goes. -all set up for hopefully 2 clear nights here in Scotland a rarity!!
  15. are there any merits for doing the rgb 1x1 verses 2x2 apart from rescaling?
  16. Hello I plan to image the iris nebula tonight, obviously i hope to get as many L as i can but will i get away binning 2x2 on the rgb or is it better to go 1x1 on the colour?
  17. thanks i would take Ha of course is there more Oiii or Si????
  18. Hello I plan to image the the elephants trunk neb in narrowband what is the main emmision all will i just use all 3 equal time?
  19. yes of course this is my image, i would never post an image taken by someone else and pass it off as my own. image taken with atik 314L+ and 200mm canon prime, on an heq5. 1 hour Ha and 1 hour O3. canon lens is F2.8 so picks up alot in a relatively short amount of time. will hopefully capture the 'other' side of the veil sometime soon.
  20. stair trails above my cottage and some burning of wire wool in my local forest. Ps wear a hat when trying it! think i set my hair alight at one point.
