evening all,

well after 18 months, my flats have finally worked and boy does it make a difference in processing! before i used to get crater like gradients and whatever but at last! feels so good to finally be able to use every pixel my camera has!

this is a 6x300sec image of the double cluster.

hope you like it

Flats are hell to get right but once done you'd never want to go back. Good flats also allow you to get more detail out during processing.

I did a process earlier without them and there were nowhere near as many stars.

Very nice, so what did you do differently to get the flats to work?

I have no idea they just sort of did!

Good work, flats are working well there. As you can see so much more data to play with.

Congratulations, I seem to recall your previous thread about not being able to do flats.

Great when you finally get them right isn't it?

Yeah it's a really good feeling. Something off my shoulders!

Great pic. What software did you you use?

Thanks [emoji106] Erm for capture it was APT then DSS then PS CS3

Yes I have tried both the Astronomik CLS and CCD CLS filters and still get the Red :-(

That's very strange. I'm not the one to ask really. I'm the more "monkey see monkey do" guy, not the theory guy :p

Modded DSLRs are always red heavy without a custom WB.

On a sunny day, pop a lens on and take a jpg photo of a piece of copier paper (sun must be shining on it, and must fill the frame). Then, use that jpg as a custom white balance in your camera. After that, your subs should turn out less skewed towards red.

Might have to have a go at That!
