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
AstroGear List: 60Da, T2i, Moded 1000D, Meade LX90 8in, Astro-Tech 8" f/4 imaging Newtonian, Skywatcher 80mm APO ED, Orion ST 80 guide scope, SSAG, Celestron CGEM mount.
