Image size for stacking.

Recommended Posts

Ron Clarke

Last night I took 40+ images with the Canon 1100d, there size (according to DSS) was 4290 x 2856.

Just took some Flats with the same camera and there size (according to DSS) is 3906 x 2602.

DSS won't stack them because of the different sizes. What is the reason for the difference in image size and

What can I do about it?

 

Cheers

Ron

Did you still have the nifty 50 on the front.

Did you take the flats by increasing the shutter speed or decreasing the aperture on the lens.

If you decreased the aperture the image size will get slightly smaller.

Didn't know about the image size changing slightly with aperture..interesting..

Make logical sense.

If you reduce the aperture you decrease the diameter of light passing through the lens.

It therefore must affect the size of the image projected onto the chip.
