  1. Hello all, This is my first post on SL, so please correct me if I have started this topic in the wrong place. I am also relatively new to astrophotography, so please ignore my naivety! I had some clear skies last week, so decided to do some lunar imaging with my new(ish) ASI224MC. I captured my frames in SharpCap as RAW24 AVI files, stacked in AS!2 and processed in Registax and Photoshop. When i got to sharpening in Photoshop, I noticed a sort of mosaic pattern over the image, which took away from some of the detail, and really ruined the image the more I sharpened. I did a quick search and it turned up with 'debayering'. This is a completely new concept to me and all of my attempts didn't seem to improve the image at all (perhaps I was debayering in the wrong order?). I have attached some images and also my some of my SharpCap settings in case they are of help. COLOUR SPACE: RAW24 CAPTURE ARE: 1304x976 OUTPUT FORMAT: AVI files (*.avi) EXPOSURE: 0.29ms GAIN: 282 Thank you in advance Regards, Josh.
  2. I have been doing visual observing since I got my 8SE about a year ago, but I've been intrigued by the possibility of seeing a bit more (at least on my laptop screen). I got a 224MC and captured some images of Europa transiting Jupiter last night. The seeing was just average and I was on my back patio in light polluted suburban skies. This hardly matches the amazing images I've seen here on SGL, but I had some fun creating them. I followed the terrific image processing tutorials here: http://planetaryimagingtutorials.com/ I used Firecapture to capture both Jupiter and the globular cluster (M3), stacked in AutoStakkert, then enhanced a little in Registax. I did not use a barlow for Jupiter or my 0.5x reducer for M3. In my eyepiece with the light pollution and neighbor's porch lights, I could barely make out the smudge of M3 to center it in my EP. I was surprised it was so clear in the 224MC.
  3. I know, 130PDS is not the best scope for planetary AP. But I just wanted to share my beginner's results. Both taken on 5th and 6 of May 2018, using 130PDS, x3 Barlow and ZWO ASi224MC. SharpCarp > Autostakert+Registrax Thanks for looking
