Dear LeCarl....

I know that the processing steps really do seem intimidating but it is not...
Alternatively, you can use this (http://www.astronome...gb_tutorial.php)

In any case u need small careful steps...

I think this has to be the sharpest lens in this category and comparable to the APO lenses from LEICA.
Indeed congrats LeCarl

Sound very interesting! (currently listening)!!! :shocked:
...but I don't have imagesplus, anyway, someday I will buy pixinsight, as in local forum many people use it,
(I need a bigger (256gb) SSD too... PI need his own system, because PI security dislike the freezed/locked win7, It disable his licences by itself on startup, I locked my windows like in schools or professional computer... this keep away viruses, and stupid software)


****Thanks all for the congrats ! :bow:

I think the nikkor lens is very good, for the price too!
(I will post something on your thread:
