  1. Hi I took my first Solar avi's today with a PST and QHY5-II. They were not that good due to intermittent cloud, but I managed a few runs of 1000 to 2000 frames. I have been trying to process them but both Registax and AS2 are falling over during processing. AS2 runs through quite quickly but just hangs at the MAP Recombination stage. The Stack button rehighlights and the system is idle but no file is produced. Registax takes for ever but hangs after the Limit stage. I am running Windows 7 on an i3 laptop. Any ideas? Is it something I am doing or could it be a quality issue with the video. Thanks Barry
  2. Hello, I am new to Registax 6. Tried stacking lunar eclipse photos (used JPG images, could not get right exposure with video). Used stock settings and reduced points to only 40. I keep getting ghost images after stacking. What can I do to eliminate this? Thank You, Michal
  3. Just need your help setting the wavelets etc to get the best possible image out of this stacked moon picture!
  4. Hi all - I've been using our family Canon 350d for long (60 second) exposures over the last week to see what I can get. Stacking is the next thing to try out - I have a ToUCam Pro II but no adaptor yet. I've looked up in Stellarium and Jupiter rises over my location around 4am, so I was thinking of giving that a go. From what I understand you have about 3 minutes to get as many shots as possible before Jupiters high turn rate starts to affect the shots. With that in mind, and I think the shutter speed has to be about 1/125th ish otherwise the light from Jupiter will wash out the bands, colours etc. But will I physically be able to fire off enough shots to count? The 350d doesn't a) have Live view and can't take avi files. So it'll need to be manual firing from the cable release. So do I try or wait until I get the webcam adaptor? cheers frank
  5. Hi everyone! I reprocessed my photos - stacking a LOT more, and I thought I'd show a comparison. The photos were taken from the same video of Copernicus, which was about 10,000 frames. The first time I stacked it, I used just 20 frames, but I decided to try 2,000. It made a massive difference. The morel of the story - don't use too few! David
  6. I think I could do with some advice on my use of wavelets (and the rest of my processing probably) in Registax 6 for Jupiter. I either get a really soft image with little detail, or an ugly over-processed image to bring out more details. These are my latest 2 images from last night. I pre-process in PIPP and stack in Registax 6. You can see the un-waveleted TIFF version here. Can anyone get more out my image than I can because I'm stumped. Is there more to come out or is the original video not good enough? (Image captured using Skymax-180 and DBK 21AU618.as, 60fps, Y800 raw.) Thanks for your help. Mark

  8. With the couple of decent nights we had last week I was able to finally get a view of Jupiter at opposition this year! The problem I've been having is when I've processed the videos. I've been taking videos in RAW8 at a custom resolution (720×240) with a ASI120MC camera in sharpcap. I noticed that the image would jump about periodically causing part or all of Jupiter to flash to different parts of the frame. I hoped that when aligning with PIPP and then limiting the number of frames in Sarpcap to the 10% highest quality images that it'd go away but when I finish the image I get the strange line artifacts that are evident in the attached image, which are ruining the images. The jumping didn't happen in "normal" resolutions so that seems to be the most obvious solution. I was wondering though if anyone had any advice of how to process the videos in PIPP/Registax/other program in order to delete these rogue frames? Cheers guys.
  9. A basic guide to Registax shows that you just choose a number of frames (or percentage etc) and click next and move onto the next step. How does Registax know what a good frame is? Does it just use the 1st frame of the video as a reference? I've seen detailed lunar stacking guides where an artificial pre sharpened (in PS/GIMP) is then inserted back into Registax and used as the reference frame for LIMIT. Anyone do this with video stacking? and if so, what's your basic workflow to produce the reference frame?

  11. I'm pretty new to this whole astrophotography thing, specifically the whole image resolving and stacking part. I've been using registax 6 to edit the videos, and I think I'm pretty much done with an image of Jupiter I've been practicing on from a video of Jupiter I found on the internet. I was wondering what I should do to get rid of those weird ring things around the edge of Jupiter and maybe clean up and sharpen the edges all together. Any other tips you have that could make the image cleaner are very much welcome. Thanks!
  12. I've been out of imaging for quite some time and my mind has become somewhat dulled (not sure if its age, alcohol or combination :-) ) and i cannot remember just how much/little to process with wavelets in Registax6. Is anyone willing to share their settings to give me a starting point? As an example or 2 - do you use 'linear or dyadic'? ; how about 'linked wavelets' and do you adjust all 6 levels or maybe just 1,2 and6 and in what order? I'm also guessing that the settings vary depending on the target- Moon, Jupiter etc, seeing and other factors - scope & camera? It may be worth building a library to give (me and other) new imagers a baseline to work with. thanks in advance Neil
  13. Early this morning (1 May) I imaged Jupiter, Saturn & Mars with my C8. (Celestron C8 SE, ASI120MC, ADC). When I tried processing the image videos, at the 'wavelet' stage in Registax6, Registax would not improve the blurred image at all on the Jupiter and Saturn images. (0.100 sharpen, 100%) I have had this happen before and put it down to poor seeing and poor raw images. The raw images here looked rather blurry. However the Mars images, taken under the same conditions, turned out quite well, with a fairly sharp planetary edge and a real-looking dark patch. Not bad considering the small size (about 10") and the low altitude (about 10 deg) and the indifferent seeing. Can more experienced imagers suggest the problem with the Jupiter and Saturn imaging? All three planets were imaged within an hour, with a 1000 frame .ser video (converted to .avi with PIPP because Registax did not accept the .ser files) and processed in Registax6. Initally I focused on a Jupiter moon, and I refocused for Mars on Altair, at which point the focus seemed close. UPDATE: I tried processing again with different settings, and got the Saturn images up to the standard of my previous efforts. The Jupiter images improved, but remained poor, showing just the two principal cloud belts (but it was low when imaged).
  14. I have just purchased a ZWO ASI120 and started to image the sun with my Lunt Solar 60. but I ma having problems with stacking the outputted Avi files. In registax the file loads up, the image is seen and it starts the stacking process but once you hit the stack it just goes blank. In autostakkert it wont even load. The problem is with large files 2 and 4 gb. I have compressed and registax seems to work. But autotakkert wont take the compressed file either. The strange thing is last month I took another AVI which is 3.3 Gb and autstakkert takes it no problem. Another odd thing. If I take a film with Sony a7s and convert it to Avi neither programme will stack it. Any advice?
  15. Hi guys, I'm new to planetary or lunar imaging but having seen lots of stuff on-line I thought I'd be able to tackle Registax, pretty well... But no... I got a lot of Division by zero errors and Access Violations... Do you get these regularly? Plus, when I used the "show something" checkboxes at the top I felt like the program didn't do anything I asked it to. For instance I would click on the "Show full image" and it wouldn't do a thing, but when I unchecked it it would show me the unzoomed image which wasn't there in the first place... I'm a Canon shooter and I know *.mov's aren't accepted by Registax so I used a free converter to convert it to avi. Could that be it? What software do you use to converto MOV files to process in Registax? Thanks a lot, cheers
  16. Hi, Feedback and advice appreciated. Images below were taken saturday night between 11.30 and about 2.30am. Celestron Evolution 9.25 with Skyris 445c. Captured using iCap software (comes with the Skyris) and processed with Registax (also with Skyris). Notes: Windy and some slight haziness like fine clouds. Questions: Dew shield on (essential as it is very prone to dew) and couldn't work out how to use the bahtinov mask without moving everything trying to put the dew shield back again! Focus through EP was spot on but removal of EP and diagonal to put Skyris into prime focus meant need to significantly adjust focus - this was tricky on the laptop using liveview in iCap. I think the lunar shots are poorly focused but was otherwise pleased with the detail. Saturn images are pretty much as they were through the EP and the video was bouncing and blurring mainly due to the wind. Not sure why the colour is so poor though - is this because Saturn is just so low or I need to take images through EP / barlow? Same issues with focussing in liveview. A lot of questions - early days and so much to learn! Also any idea what attachment I need to connect the Skyris to my Baader EPs - I have the Canon EOS 100D and the adaptor (from FLO) attachs to the EPs. The Skyris has a 1.25" nosepeice so I'm wondering if there is some sort of adaptor? Lastly, should I break the questions up into different topics or forum areas or is it ok to do it this way? Also what format is best for posting an image? I also tried Autostakkert but it wouldn't allow me to use the avi files created in the iCap software used with the Skyris.
