Had to test the mount out.

So I was shooting 30 second subs between the clouds.

Managed about 50 before being totally clouded out.

Out of the 50 only 23 were usable.

Tried 4 times to stack them in DSS but it was having none of it for some reason.

Ended up stacking the best 50% above a score of 120.

That left only 9 subs.

Stacked in DSS

Quick brush up in PS 6.

For so little data it came out surprising well although I have lost all the colours from the stars converting it to a JPEG and reducing it down in size to put on here.

Nice image

Found myself also drawn to all the little astersims/clusters ? in shot

Just left of Lower centre looks like a crushed Orion (not the car)

If Dss had played up anymore that little star cluster would not be the only thing that looked like a crushed Orion. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Always nice to see Dumbbell images. All the data is there Graham.

Not been here for a while but I see you've been busy through the Summer :)

Question is how did you manage to grab anything? Skies here have been awful [not that I was in a position to benefit].

Hope to get cracking next week. Silly season is virtually over at work.
