Hi. I'm still a stacking newbie, hoping someone here could help.
Been having a ball stacking this summer, see http://www.stargazin...llen/photos.htm . Running my 24" scope with a Tom O. EQ platform, Canon 450D, ISO 1600. I can typically get 35 to 40 45 second shots on a single run of the platform. I've been using Deep Star Stacker, just running with the recommended options. Then I pull the RGB bells together to create a half-way decent image. I seem to have better luck stacking jpeg than raw images. Taking dark frames allows me more images in a run, but my bed sheet flats don't seem to make a difference.
Tom O. suggested I look at https://www.cloudyni...d-1s-subs-lrgb/ . I just skimmed this thread, but it got me thinking. Is it possible to try a set of 5 second or even 1 second images? On my runs this summer I did 45 second images with a 5 second gap between images, for shutter shake and cool down. Could I do 5 or even 1 second shots with no time between shots? Is that even possible?
