Well after a catologue of problems with my newt and camera I set up the 127mm Frac sorted the camera and got back to what I love to do, imaging.


 


Took this tonight through a veil of high cloud.


 


16 - 300 second subs at ISO 800


5 Darks


11 Flats


 


Stacked in DSS


Quick brush up in PS6.


 


I have had to crop this to the extream to get rid of the rubbish that is still stuck to my sensor but I am quite pleased with it.

Tobias - thanks


 


Mick - When I read of other people troubles with the CCD side I wonder myself mick. I would like to have a go at some RGBL stuff.


 


Andy - Not as yet, now I have the frac up and running I will take my time with the newt, Strip it right down and flock it.

Hi Eddy.


Noticed that about the stars myself this morning.


Too tired to see it last night as I had been laying concrete all day.


I must have missed a couple of bad subs when I went through it.


I will have another look at this if I get time today.

Fair enough :) Like most of us, in a rush to process and then realise the following morning you've left some bad subs or accidently kicked out good subs aswell :lol:
