Hello "S1mas".

I am interested to see your color balance settings.

Would it be possible to show a screen shot with the "White Balance" (Red & Blue sliders),

together with the live stack histogram.

I'm still struggling with the ASI224MC color balancing.

Do you apply darks?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Roel, my name is Simas, so that's why here I'm S1mas smile.gif

Yes, I always apply darks, got whole library of various ones.

Here is screenshot from yesterday M 64 observing. Usually I keeping saturation slider at 1.00-1.30. But with M64 and observing conditions easily went to 2.86. Those are final settings for M64 observing session:
