    Default Mixed Results On Second Session



    Still a little at sea with the new rig, but -- getting some results that are not too terrible. I do have some issues with the solar filter -- it does not fit my scope well at all. Grrr. Also, I bought too much camera for my laptop, but -- I can fix that.

    Shamelessly boosting my post count so I can make an album...still three short.

    This started as a 100 frame Quick Capture in SharpCap 3.0 -- saved as AVI. That was imported into PIPP and that produced 175 JPEGs, including the quality reference images. I am currently running a trial of Zerene Stacker and it produced two output files -- ZSPMax and ZSDMap.

    Not having a clear understanding of that, I stacked those, as well. It turned out okay, however -- I liked the ZSPMax best. It had a lot of detail built up in it.

    I am still mostly just trying to get a good image "in the can" -- the exposure, gain and half a dozen other settings are all fairly critical...dialing everything is, especially the focus -- is challenging.

    I most definitely need a tent, screen blind, comfortable chair and cold beverage for this. Probably sun screen wouldn't hurt, either.
