Hi,

 

I'm lazy bum who doesn't belong to AP "Imaging & Processing" especially the latter, and usually live with OSC live stack without calibration and zero processing but stretching & leveling. 

I heard OSC integrated with L from mono camera can enhance picture greatly and I'd like to try that.

As a lazy bum, I'd like to take two pictures at the same time with two different scope/camera, and process once and done.

The best would be matching them the same but I don't have a way to do it, so here it goes the question. "Which of OSC vs L has to be better resolution for best result?"

 

I have

  C11 that can image at F10/F6.3/F4 (F=2800/1780/1120)

  AT80 F6 (F=480) with FF

 

With OSC camera with pixel size of  2.4um (1"), 3.8um(1") and 7.6um(APS-C) all cooled and possibly can go uncooled 1.6um/1.2um with small sensor with Pi-camera. And going to borrow mono camera with pixel size of 3.8um (4/3) for this trial.

 

My setup is mostly C11+AT80 where AT80 as guider or vice versa depending on target size, and with this dual capture setup I plan to use OAG on AT80.

Due to the focal length difference, I can't even closely match with imaging resolution between two scope/camera. So, in my simple mind I have to choose one has wide field with small pixel and smaller field with larger pixel. But considering the effect of L on image, it might work better if I use finer resolution on L rather than OSC. 

What do you think? Let me hear your opinions and thanks in advance!
