Quote:Hi my friend, you've tried to compile a video with registax? should greatly improve the final result.

Quote:Very nice.Those modified 1-4s exposures do indeed show real promise. I look forward to what some noise reduction (cooling) will do.Will you consider documenting your AGC disabling circuitry (and any other mods)?
