Yes, I agree. The image in the actual AVI was really quite dim; I had turned gain, brightness and contrast down during capture with K3CCDTools. It seems that stacking in Registax brightened the image to an unacceptable level. I've had another go with the AVI, this time limiting the image to 70 odd frames and reducing brightness and contrast in Registax. I think I might go back to my previous method of using both a lunar filter and Badder Contrast Booster filter as I seemed to get better results that way judging by my first attempt.
