Beginner's guide to stacking planetary images with AutoStakkert!2

Recommended Posts

i tried to take pictures at the moon, i discorvered that it's a take focus..i mean, for the telescope the focus looks fine (it looks fine in the little screen of the camera too) but when i zoom the pics and when i put them in the computer they are kinda blurry even tho the focus is right...why? =( will this happen with the asi 120mc too? I hope not..anyway, i took also a video and im currently processing it with pipp (1200 frames of 7800 total) let's see what happens with the video...

That would give you a larger image and change the point of focus, certainly.

Hi..... I'm very new to all this but I'm having a go.... I've downloaded both Registax and Autostakkert 2.... And now I'm stuck!!! I cannot find any straightforward instructions... I have taken a sample video to start myself off (mars...!).... Registax will accept the video but I'm not exactly sure what to do.... Autostakkert will not accept any video I try to upload, also the analyse option is seemingly unavailable to me (which I'm reasonably sure is because I cannot get a video clip uploaded...) 

I was originally working with .mov files but I converted one to .avi, which Registax then accepted and will do... things....(!).... but Autostakkert will still not open.... 

I'm sure I'm missing something simple, all advice will be very gratefully received!

Thanks in advance!

I found the tutorial on page 1 pretty comprehensive... Did you run the video through PiPP first? That worked for me. Just re-read through the tutorial and make sure you follow each step.

Man I could get the same result on my picture!  I followed along and it turned out not that great.
