Apologies for maybe not searching more exhaustively among the forums, but am wondering where i might be able to find some good sample data to practice and learn stacking, processing and image enhancements?.

I've given things a shot on my own, but given my output, am not convinced that I am starting with very good data. Would like to find a handful of good sample image sets so i can see what a "good" process effort on my part will come out like, and not wonder if my (so far) poor results are becuase i took bad images.....

 

I realize some of these may be potentially big datasets, so im certainly not going to be picky about what i can get my hands on!!

 

thanks much!

rockstarbill here on CN has a pinned thread with lots of excellent CCD data: https://www.cloudyni...d-lots-of-them/

 

If you would rather practice with DSLR data, Wei-Hao Wang (whwang on CN) has you covered: https://drive.google...YzJHLTdwZzRldEU

Have you looked at the TAIC data? Not only free but you can also see how others have processed the same data..
