Beginner in astro imaging.

Recommended Posts

I started imaging about 10 days ago and had mixed success. I'm capturing in APT and stacking in APP, but my processing has been a bit hit and miss, the pics below have been re-processed as I've learned more.  Here are my efforts since starting. M45 -Pleiades, M31 - Andromeda, NGC7308 - Wizard Nebula and IC59 Ghost Nebula.  All taken with an Altair 183C Pro TEC, Esprit80ED and EQ6-R mount, captured with Astro Photographic Tools and stacked in Astro Pixel Process, finished off in Photoshop.

APP is Astro Pixel Processor. Not as many features as PixInsight but pretty straightforward to learn and use. Gives IMO excellent results. Reputedly one of the very best packages for stitching mosaics.

I'm amazed at what you have managed to achieve in only 10 days.  It's always a  good idea to post up, the specs, ie camera, mount, (which you have done) filters if used, and number and length of exposures.  Plus possible total imaging time.
