DMK 21AU04.AS Mono Settings

Recommended Posts

I've just upgraded from a Toucam to the DMK mono and wondered if anybody here has done one or seen a tutorial or information for it's use in planetary imaging with colour filters ?

Had a quick search looking for one without much success, lots of individual snipets of information but nothing all in one place.

Thanks, Andy

My setup looks like this:


DMK 21 + Lumicon filter selector + Barlow (2x or 5x). When Imaging I shoot 1-2 avis for each color (RGB baader set) and depending on target other filters (Astronomik Pro Planet 742 IR filter for Mars, Moon) - I set the filter name in the avi prefix to keep it organized.

I've bought the filter selector cheap - it works, but on long focal length on EQ3-2 with a 150/750 Newtonian changing filters moves the scope slightly (motorised filter wheel would be much better)

For RGB stacking you can use Astra Image ($ required). It also can do LRGB stacking but for some reason it doesn't work correcly for my images from DMK21 (did stack LRGB from friend JPEG DSLR images).
