    Default DSLR Imaging the not so dark art



    As A guide to DSLR imaging please refer to this site this was the first article I read about the subject and it helped

    Jim Solomon's Astrophotography Cookbook

    this article is very informative and gives you a basic idea

    although Jim uses IRIS to do stacking and some processing a more straight forward program is

    Deep Sky Stacker

    however the principals are the same

    I use Photoshop, or in combination with Maxim DL and Pixinslight to do my processing

    Cheers

    Hi Trevor,

    The info at that link is superb! From a quick once-over it seems that nearly any DSLR question is answered as you read through the text.

    I'm sure that many of the members will be visiting that site in the coming months, as it seems more and more amateur's are moving into Astrophotography as the costs for the equipment are reduced due to better technology.

    Thanks!

    Mike
