First light with ASI 183MM

Post by Merlin66 » Fri Mar 23, 2018 4:34 am

Using the SS SM60/ ED80/ BF15 combo.

Resolution and performance look good - 19 fps at full frame (5496 x 3672) and an impressive 40 fps at an ROI similar to the ASI 178 (3000 x 2080)

Using FireCapture V2.6x64.
Quiet sun with small proms. Processed in AS!3, Registax6, PSP7.

So far so good.

Rainer,
A reduced resolution, full frame coverage.....
The original after stacking in AS3! was 38 Mb!!

The input file was a 9.8Gb SER file - 26 sec @ 19fps giving 495 frames.
This took a total processing time in AS3! of 826 sec (13.76 mins)
