Dumping lots of frames on M5

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Did a simple "experiment" of collecting 1700 frames at 30 sec over few nights for M5 (RedCat 51, ASI178MM, UHC filter) to see how much background I can get out of it and what's the noise will be like. Sadly not that much magic detail there, but at least it does look nice ;)

1700 subs stack should be saved as 32bit floating point fits rather than 16bit.

You can loose quite a bit of precision as 1700 subs is almost 11 additional bits.

Hope you don't mind - I took liberty to process the fits you posted, here is result:

That's why I posted the raw stack :) Nicely done.
