Hey folks, I am wondering if I have something fundamentally wrong with my setup, or if I am just being too ambitious and should just stick to making 52 images of M31 or the Moon every year
I know my mount is not that great for DSO (Skyguider Pro) and I have a DSLR lens and camera, but I figured I should be able to see SOME sign of nebulosity
I took on the Wizard on Sunday. Unfortunately a broken USB cable and some focus issues limited the subs I could take, but I would have thought that a 180 second sub at f/4.5 ISO 200 would show *some* hint of nebulosity, but I see ... just stars in a variety of focus
This is an unstretched light I understand I need to stack to get a good signal but each sub should add something right? Even stretched I really don't see anything here. Even if I do 30 sec at ISO3200 I still don't really see anything
I do see this pattern when I zoom in Pixinsight with the new lens I am using. I do see something like it with the old cheap zoom lens but it appears to be a lot less.
I figure I should be able to get *some* results on these targets even if they aren't wall-hangers.
I am going to go over my setup and take it down to the single parts and reconfigure and re-setup everything, including camera.
I suppose it could be bad data transfer from the dodgy cable that finally failed but that seems a bit far fetched
