While the Kokatha man seems to be able to spin gold out of straw recently (see https://www.cloudyni...jove-june-12th/ ), I'm stuck with rain, clouds and wind turning my captures into dead space on my hard disk. So I thought I'd try reprocessing some older, better frames to see if my processing technique has improved.

 

Here are some images from a month ago which really didn't get a good go the first time around. I tried a few different settings in Registax, trying not to sharpen too much, and came up with a reasonable looking set of images, nothing spectacular, but probably typical of my equipment. Pushing the sharpening up just made everything looking muddy, I even tried stacking the sharpened images in WinJupos (ala Darren and Darryl) but that made the images worse, I'm probably doing something wrong there. 

 

Anyway, for your critique, here are some of the final images. Seeing deteriorated at the end of the session, so the last couple are not as sharp.

 

Details: Celestron Evolution 6" SCT, 2x Barlow, Canon 700D, 5000 images at 20 fps, AltAz field rotation removed in WinJupos, 50% stacked in AS!3 with 3x drizzle, sharpened in Registax, aligned in WinJupos and final touches in Photoshop Elements, final frame size 50% larger than actual.

 

Thanks,

 

Andrew
