Alrighty... So I just got my first real Astronomy camera (prior to this I was just using a DSLR and a intervalometer) and need to learn how to use this new ZWO camera, set up imaging plan for the evening etc.  As of right now I've downloaded all of the software and drivers (i think) and have gotten a live view through the camera to ensure it works, but thats it.    

 

I would love to learn all the ins and outs about taking proper Darks, Flats, Biases? Lights, etc. 

Learn how to use APT and actually understand the steps and why vs "just click this button"  (or any software if there's one thats better) 

 

Brand new and dont want to spend the few clear evenings we get fumbling around in the dark attempting to learn the hard way. 

 

So if anyone knows of any comprehensive tutorials or online classes that would be amazing if you could point me in the right direction. 

Many thanks!
