Quote:Here are some follow up images taken with the same setup as before ie mono Lodestar + 14" SCT @F3.3. All are single shot with no involved processing. All images were between 60s and 180s. This time I used the Lodestar tool to capture the images and I no longer have the horizontal lines.The version of Lodestar I got from the SX site is 1.1a with a date in 2008. Is there a newer version? The software is a bit clunky but does get the job done.My Lodestar has a column defect I believe so I had Lodestar automatically subtract a dark frame. This produced some minor artifacts.I used the non-linear stretch button with the default setting.Here's M8 with no dark applied. I assume the vertical line is a column defect but I'd like to hear what others say.
