Hello guys,

this started off as a test to see if some custom capture/focus software I wrote was working okay...and somehow I ended up capturing nearly an hour of footage as I left it to watch Embarrassing Bodies!

Shot with my PSEye camera, Skywatcher 130P, RA drive. Stacked in Registax and cleaned with CS5 and GradientXterminator. Post-processing to remove the vignetting from the stacking and gradients took *hours*... I couldn't do better than this I'm afraid :) I tried for ages with DSS but my flats just didn't have any effect. I think this was because there was some high cloud which slightly affected many of the shots.

I'm quite pleased that some mag 16 stars show up in here though.

FYI here's one of the original light shots to show what I'm working with! Original on left, mega curves version on the right. Would this still be the case if I'd used a DSLR instead?

Cheers for looking
