I have been imaging M45 and have come up with this form of issue with the stars. It almost looks like I have left (and I did think this) the Bahtinov mask on, however I didn't. This is not the first time I have noticed this star issue. Any ideas? This is my equipment: Explore Scientific 80ED Apo Triplet; Explore Scientific Field Flattener; Canon 250D mod; 2in UHC filter; 60mm Guidescope; ZWO ASI120MC-S.
I have a huge problem with DSS.
About a week ago, I took 300, 2 second long exposures of Andromeda with my skywatcher 90/900.
But when DSS started scanning the stars in the images, it only registered about 5 stars at 40%. And only 7 stars at 20%. I tried to stack them and selected stack 100% of frames, but it only stacked around 29.
I even tried it at 4% where it registered around 40 stars, but DSS crashed mid process due to the immense amount of stars being scanned (60 000 per image at least).
I tried it sooooo many times, but I don't get it to work. It somehow stacked 131 images I took of the lagune nebula (1 second lang exposure). You couldn't see the actual nebula, but some bright stars were there and DSS was able to stack.
In the Andromeda pics, there were like 5 times more stars, but it didn't work.
If anyone knows what's wrong, pls help me!!! I'm slowly loosing it on that nonsense.
Hi everyone - juts purchased my first telescope and am asking for advice on what is best to be seen through this telescope as a starter - have already seen the moon and some distant stars and am comfortable with using all of the eye pieces included. What would anyone recommend?
