Hi is anyone using Regim to stack using a dslr modded , currently trying to work out the settings in regim , im using a modified canon 1000D , do i need to set up libraw within regim ? if anyone has good success in using regim i would be interested in hearing what settings you are using .
I took some really rough images of M42 the other night, alignment and focus was by eye, heavily light polluted, no calibration frames and I have a dusty corrector plate. However, this was the first time I have shot a deep sky object and for how rough it was I was pleased, see attached.
I watched a lot of DSS tutorial videos last night and I decided to stack the 16 images I have just to see what I get. Now, I am under no delusions as to the expected quality of the final image however, stacking made all the stars vanish and the overall quality of the image was less that that of a single frame. Any suggestions? I do not have an example image saved, sorry.
Hi, I have recently changed my laptop to a Dell XPS 15 which has an i5 processor. Notably it has a combined drive ie it has 100GB Solid State Drive (C:) which is where the programs and operating system reside plus a 1TB Hard Drive (D:) for general files. I am getting error messages from DSS that there is not enough space on my C drive, it requiring on this occasion 4.5GB. Looking at the C drive it was indeed very low on free space, so I freed up some space on my C drive and got rid of that message. But when DSS ran it went through the whole process to the end and then didn't produce an image. I checked the settings and there is a path specified for the output so that is apparently set correctly. I have used DSS for many years on my old laptop, but this laptop is a problem. I think the issue lies in the combined drives. There is 1TB of space available to it on the D: drive but it doesn't seem to be able to use it. I wonder also if there is an issue with the pathway specified so that it is not 'seeing' the file allocated to it on the D: drive. I tried moving DSS folder to the D: drive and ran it from here but it still has the same issues. Has anyone come across this kind of issue? And is there a solution?
Hi, can anyone help with star detection in DSS. I have been getting some good images using my Star Discovery 150p and nikon d5100.
I'm using a 2xbarlow as I know I can't gain prime focus on this OTA and keeping my exposures down to 25secs due to field rotation with it being a Altazimuth mount and this can also be corrected in processing.
The problem I'm having is that when I put everything in to DSS and register the images, it detects hundreds of stars but when I stack them it tells me there's not enough stars and to change the threshold so it can stack more of the images!
The threshold is already set all the way to the left at 2%
I'm using 100 x 25sec exposures iso 1600, 25 x dark @ 25secs iso 1600 and 25 x bias @ 1/4000secs iso 1600
No matter what I do it will only stack the dark, the bias and 1x25secs exposure!
Is there anyone out there that has had similar issues and can shed some light on this please.
