Re: Nightscapes using AstroTrac Tracking Mount


I also just tried my shot at Orion this past weekend and I'm not sure what to think. Here is a before/after of what I got out of Deep Sky Stacker and then Lightroom. I'm really lost when it comes to Deep Sky Stacker and knowing what settings to use. Post processing is also quite challenging. I'm also not sure if I should adjust the levels in DSS before passing it on to Lightroom. Any suggestions?

Exposures were from 20, 30, 60, 90 seconds at ISO 800. In retrospect I should have bumped the ISO up. I saw earlier that Fred stacked the shorter exposures on his picture separately and than merged the stacked images. I might try that.

I'm also getting the itch to buy a modified camera.
