Finally a decent imaging run

Recommended Posts


Well finally managed an hour or two imaging condition were not brilliant but had a stab at it anyway ,guiding is getting there ,though needs a tweak but i picked m81 /82 and decided as it was a better sized target for fov just to let it roll and see what i got , i needed a decent guide file to give it time to settle , rms probably slightly to high overall but it is a benchmark to start from ,ran the guiding assistant and came back with no backlash so that means the belt mods working , applied settings it said , i took approx 80 x120 sec  Dithered subs  25 bias as Darks and 40 flats stacked in Dss . guide log file   here https://www.dropbox.com/s/nh3kpxy71a2xp46/PHD2_GuideLog_2019-02-23_195652.txt?dl=0 so if anyone has any tips on tweaking the guiding im all ears ,also noticed the eqmod settings for pulse guiding had reverted back to default so will keep this in mind and need to recheck ,set at 0.5 and 0.7 respectivley.
