It came to my attention quite how many ED80 lovers there were amongst us at EMS3, I'm wondering about setting up a group target project that we all can combine our data to see what the outcome would be..

Thoughts ??? Or ideas ???

Great Idea, I am not an imager, my bent is IT.


 


If there are several of you, you will need to sort out some shared area with a common id & password. Would suggest dropbox. If I can help don't hesitate to ask.

I suppose everyone that's up for it to have a vote and we draw from a hat.. We can say maybe no more than 1hours data from each person so then it's not taking up to much time from people's usual target missions.

From memory andy laing (andyboy1970) did some comined imaging on M27, using two diffeent nights imaging and types of data. It may be worth dropping him a pm.

yes combining different nights/telescopes and cameras can be done with registar and others  (not registax) as long as you have enough grunt in the PC


 


I've done ccd and dslr combined in the past and most on here regularly do several nights subs for one image


 


I would suggest something out of the murk and high enough to reduce guiding errors

I may also be up for being involved in this.

Interesting ibbo. Can registax handle data from different size sensors and stack them?

It would have to be as simple as possible for the first effort i think and then maybe build up to mixing camera types and reducers ect. Maybe just an ED80 and a DSLR to start with..

I'm just trying to not over complicate it to begin with, but I'm glad it's tickled people's interest, just need to find a target any ideas on that area folks..

Steven, as you know I am using an ED80 with the same reducer as you and a Canon 1000d so would be happy to discuss such a project with you when I return from my holiday, assuming you have no takers before.
