first image of saturn


Recommended Posts

Hi that's not too bad for a first try... there used to be a thread somewhere where everyone posted their first try take a look at it.

However if you would like to get some assistance and how to improved tips please provide more information such as:

1. what set-up was used?

2. is this a single frame or more?

3. any post processing done?

Thats a good 1st go you got there, some havn't even managed that, look at it this way the guy next to you with no kit will never achieve what you just did, things will just get better for you, stick with SGL you will pick up a lot of good tips & advice.

so for a single frame that is indeed excellent. as some already mentioned try capturing longer AVI movies with more than 1000 frames.

Then run it through a program like Registax or Autostakkert 2. last use the wavelets to enhance your image.

As all said before me persistence is very improtant
