Double Cluster with GPCAM


Recommended Posts


I took this in July of last year using a GPCAM v1 with a Chinon MC F2.8 135mm lens, on an AstroEQ EQ5. The software used was Sharpcap. I tried longer subs and and lower gain for this:

30 x 120s subs

20 Darks

Gain 260

I really need to start doing flats at some point. THis was processed in DSS only. I also need to get some decent processing software at some point. As an aside can anyone viewing this see a difference between the above jpeg and this PNG:

Nice shots. I would say the second is less noisy. Star colours are good in both

Thanks Michael. They're both the same image just uploaded in different formats.  It's strange, when I upload a png file it doesn't look like how I processed it, only a jpeg does. I left the image noiser to hide the amp glow in the corner but only the jpeg shows that. The png is fine when viewing on my desktop just not online.:confused2:
