6272 thats the work of reshade, this is what it looks without it: The non Reshade image still looks strange to me.  Are you using a low fov or some other trick for it?  Not saying it looks bad, just something looks different. How does Earth look with your Reshade? hmm thats interesting, what excact...

pzampella , there are many tutorials for processing on the internet, this is what i get processing your non processed jpg file: M51 (1).jpg after stacking in dss i wouldnt touch the image in that Programm, save it as a tiff or fit file and start processing somewhere else. everyone has his individua...

Astrophotography

6179 I would like to know how should I pick the relation between ISO and exposition time. First, I tried with a 6400 ISO and 15s and it was too noisy when I processed it with PixInsight. Then, I tried a 800 ISO with 30s, but the result after processing it the galaxy is too faint. Instead of keep tr...

Work progress - 0.9.8.1

i dont know how hard it is to implement but, how about adding diffraction spikes for stars that can be toggled on and off? I think it would make the visual using the telescope mode much better also screenshots would look more amazing for deep sky objects. some examples: (screenshots from spaceengine...

5787 Are you getting vignetting from hooking up the camera to a telescope or do you get it with the lens too? its coming from the lens i guess because its a zoom lens. I dont use my telescope for astrophotography because i dont have a tracking mount but i use it for Luna and planetary photography. ...

5777 They are great- what kind of camera and lens and focal length did you use? I do wide field imaging and I find that I can do 13 sec exposures at 14mm (28mm equivalent) and still have round stars.  I use DSS for stacking and then a program called Sequator to remove light pollution.Did you know y...

I agree, very interesting pictures, and the double cluster is awesome. Thank you! Bambusman, oh, ok!  You're doing great.   Light pollution and lack of a mount are indeed a bummer, but it's amazing what you can do with what you have! Thank you! At least i can watch the sky while taking the images. :)
