Nice work phase clearly showing, maybe a little overexposed?

Hi Craig. Had a go with Venus last night. Used 120x with 2x Barlow.

Set it up with a smartphone adaptor and reduced the ISO to 50 and kept messing about with the shutter. At about 1/100 the brightness was taken away leaving a dull image which seemed to show the planet best. Is there anything else I can do to try and pick it up better?

You could try shooting a phone video instead of stills.  Should be able to convert the video file to an AVI or something that can be stacked in autostakkert?

Exactly what I have done. Took some video files- converted to AVI. Unfortunately autostakkert looks ridiculously complicated once I opened it up. Will have to learn how to do it.
