    Default M42 noob afocal



    I'm still playing around with taking afocal shots through my z10 dob,so i can learn about processing.My last time out I managed to get 20 half decent pics of m42 at 10 second exp.My pos camera max's at 15.Stacked the jpegs in dss and adjusted in gimp.

    I can't see polaris from my yard,so it's taking me some time to get the tracking right on my Forced Air Retro Track platform.

    Any tips on my poor gimp skills would be appreciated.

    peace

    the bicycle pump is classic
