July 4th SM40 FD not much going on ...

Post by DJD » Wed Jul 04, 2018 1:59 pm

Not a lot going on but I got the SM40/62mm Petzval combo out at lunchtime.
100 frames stacked from 1200 frame SER using PGR G3.
Best wishes,
David

Your details are very fine.
Can you give a try on the protuberances?
There is probably more to see there.

Lovely disc David, a bit blank though ;) I hope all the fires are past now and you are not affected?

Thank you All.
Alex,
I have been experimenting with varying the gamma on my captures. My current setting favours disk detail but makes it difficult to
bring out the prom details without a lot of noise. I will need to experiment more to do a better ( more complete ) job.
Alexandra,
All the time it is so dry there is still a risk that the wind will change direction, but there is a main road between Saddleworth and our immediate
moorland. So hopefully there is not any particular danger.
Mind you, there is a smell of burning coming from the Winter Hill fires this morning.
Best wishes,
David
