Default Re: Very First Attempt at Astrophotography

Ok, I found you star-field at around 2am on Feb 13th

Stacking is easy. Start out with a few short exposures called "lights", then leave the settings the same, just put the lens cap on and take several images called "darks." Use the RAW format when you shoot. Drag the lights to DSS and check "light frames", then drag the darks to DSS and check "dark frames". Here's a tutorial I first used
