This is my first ever attempt to photo anything. I was not expecting high quality first time out, but I wasn't expecting the learning curve either.
ES AR-102 Scope, CEM60 mount, Celestron Nextimage 5 imager.
I just upgraded all the firmware in my mount yesterday. Clouds cleared just enough to get it polar aligned.
Used Icap imaging software, I also have PHP and a guide scope, but still trying to figure that part out.
Found that my mounts tracking is way off, I was hoping to image Jupiter, but tracking was off. Switched to the moon, tracking still off. Set tracking rate to lunar, still off, but better.
So I decided to shoot 100 images anyway and stack them with registax.
Just trying to figure out the software is almost as intimidating as trying to figure out my tracking issue.
So have a good laugh...... I kinda did. I have my work cut out for me tomorrow.
