Slim pickings 13/5/2017 Tal/PST mod

Post by DJD » Mon May 13, 2019 2:08 pm

Grabbed a session this morning. Seeing very wobbly.
Struggled with the proms and my plastic bag flat left some NR remnants on my AR attempts.
Tal/PST stage 2 mod, PGR G3. AR images 50 frames from 1500 frame concatenated SER.
proms 50 frames from 900 frame concatenated SER.
Hope someone gets better seeing.
Best wishes,
David
