Re: Pop!

Dan, Thank you. The seeing was about as good as I get around here (urban location) and acquisition was being controlled by a (contrast-based) seeing monitor. It's fortunate that I was able to find frames fairly uniformly spaced. For example, one image in the sequence is #751 in the video capture and...

Re: A couple of shots from 2020_04_26

Thanks all for the encouragement.
The images feel very fuzzy to me and, while the seeing wasn't great, I still feel like I could be getting more out of my processing.
Hopefully we'll be getting a nice uptick in interesting features to shoot in the next few years

Re: Using different settings in Autostakkert 3

Mark - Thanks so much for the very helpful AS info Magnus - AS does rearrange the frames. In the example below, I have performed the analysis on a 1000 frame SER file. In the image frame on the right, note that I moved the Frames slider just a bit to the right and that the frame number window to the...

Re: Using different settings in Autostakkert 3

Are the two sunspot details images straight out of AS3? The first one looks like it has deconvolution artifacts more than stacking artifacts. The second one looks much better. The brightness level should only affect the number of alignment points that are produced when you click Place AP grid. Try s...

Re: My first sun photo

Much, much better than my first attempt. About the biggest problem that you have is that there's simply not much to see up there right now. It looks like you're doing well with the image capture. The rest is all about processing. Alexandra (Montana) and Mark Townley, and possibly others, have posted...

Re: Anybody want to share their unprocessed source AVIs

We used Dropbox successfully at my work for sharing huge ultrasonic data files with a collaborator. The trick is that someone needs to have a business account to handle the larger file sizes. But it sounds as though Jack has that part handled.
