Re: acA1920-155um Basler Ace USB Camera

I'd be interested in what laptop used allows for the full frame rate (time for me to upgrade). Is any usb3 port good enough?
Is it backward compatible with usb 2 at lower rates? Thanks!

Equalization when doing mosaics

I know this has been answered before but I'm not finding it. How does one equalize the tonal range in PS when doing mosaics?
Image below! Also a pic of me imaging at the park. I always get lots of questions there and get to share the hobby.

Re: Big AR small scope

Heck, registax will output an aligned AVI and you can even choose the frame rate. Thanks for the suggestion!
Over 1.5hrs unfortunately the big spot didn't change enough to make a useful movie.

I just don't see the advantage of a wedge over solar film with shots like this. Nice!
