I'd say that's quite good, especially for the first try and not knowing how to stack. :)

Very Good try, especially as you haven't stacked before.

PS.. you need more "blacks" or "Darks" as they are more commonly called. (I would average at least 10 darks.. regardless of the number of lights)

Cheers Derek,

I will give that a try and see what difference that makes.

It will drop your noise just a bit.. not a lot, but it's there for the taking without having to use more valuable imaging time. You'll only get the benefit if you push your image to the max in processing.
