Ok I was trying to get a shot of the great nebula in orion but not sure if this is it.
I shot over 300 frames and tried to use DSS but no luck.:o
This is a single shot out of the 300+ shots.
Are there instructions on how to use DSS?

Try it again with a wider lens like 50mm @ f2 and about 5sec. 500mm @ f6.3 with .3sec will not get you anything to use.

Might not be Orion but then again your exposure is very short. At 500mm Orion should be about half the frame size or so.

I don't have a 50mm.
What do you think about using a 35mm 1:1.4?

If you google "orion widefield" and the size lens you will see the field of view you will get. I would try the 35mm if it was me.

Anything that ends in 1.4 is good. :)

10 images of 2s each, plus 4 darks. no tracking, sigma 70-300mm @300mm f5.6 ISO3200

ill stack more pictures next time. not very good, but im glad im getting there :)

i quoted mytry from the other thread. i used only 10 lights and 5 darks in dds. try these settings, you might get more stars and see the nebula better
