Hi Shamba, nice image you have captured there, lots of detail.

You may benefit from taking flat frames and calibrating them with your main images. If you are capturing Avi and stacking in autostakkert then it’s pretty straight forward. Just give me a shout if you need more info.

Some nice detail visible there. Its not easy to get an evenly illuminated disc, what did you capture it with?

That is no problem at all, I hope you are feeling better Tony. I have never found it very easy to capture a full disc, with even illumination across the disc. Very careful tuning is required.

I have more success with mosaics to be honest. As the field of view with my set up is completely full, which allows more to capture a flat in Firecapture and apply it to the SER files as they are captured.
