Any advice? As everyone once said, I'm new to all of this. I tried reading a lot around stacking, DSS, darks, etc but I'm a bit confused here. Here's three shots with their exif, let me know how I could improve.

I'd like to get more details in the sky, more colors.

Thanks for your help!

Stacking images can help pull more detail from the sky. You can read through a good tutorial on using Deep Sky Stacker here:

http://www.asignobserv​atory.com …=article&id=84&​Itemid=125 (external link)

Note, you may need to install the beta version of DSS to get it to work with your RAW files (assuming you shoot in RAW). I needed to for my 60d's RAW files. The beta is found here:

http://tech.groups.yah​oo.com/group/DeepSkySt​acker/ (external link)

It looks like you got the focus right, which is the first challenge. Next will be finding the right balance between ISO, shutter speed, and number of images to stack.

I unfortunately don't know much about mac systems or software, but I think Parallels can be used to run windows programs on mac systems. I think you would need a copy of windows as well.

Yes, that should work.

I run DeepSkyStacker using a product called Crossover for Mac, which is basically WINE wrapped around a UI. It works decently.
