So, stacking was fairly straight forward!
Then I tried to load that picture in Nebulosity for further processing, but I first had to store them in the FIT format. Either DSS can’t store correctly 32bit or Nebulosity can’t read it correctly. So, for now I have to do with 16bit.
But I’m still struggling with the post processing. Nebulosity has a couple of default steps that make the picture look better, but it’s not very impressive. Plus the resulting picture has a very bright background in a circle, but at the edges it’s almost black. I’m sure that’s not from stacking as the photos had HUGE overlap.
Downloaded RegiStax to stack the moon movie. And then I had to download a converter that converts my movie to an .avi file. But somehow I can’t see anything in RegiStax when I load the movie. Maybe it’s too long? Also, I should have taken the movie with a much smaller apperture. There are almost no details from the moon - it’s just very bright, white.
So tonight (if the weather allows):
- take another film of the moon with proper apperture, and
- take two series of the same object - one with automatic long exposure correction, one without.
Sch...!!!! A complete session for nothing. I set my camera on JPEG - assuming that it would make a RAW copy in the second flash drive. BUT NO! It created a JPEG copy in the second, so I ended up with 2 JPEG’s of each photo but no RAW. Well, tomorrow again.
I tried taking two movies: from the moon and Saturn. The moon movie is still WAY bright (even though I chose the smallest aperture). Saturn is almost not visible at all.
