16" f4.5 Newt with 2.8 barlow
Canon movie maker.
In the past with my Toucam I would operate under the, WYSIWYG mentality. If it looked good on the screen, I could assume I would get a very similar is brightness, final image.
A few of my captures appear dark when they finish and are saved.
The monitor brightness is normal, not too bright. But more importantly I'm looking at blown out details on the moon, and adjusting shutter accordingly.
I also had the histogram up but not sure what to look for with this program. Canon movie maker.
I'm only using it so I can have AVI format amd not have to convert the CR2 file.
Regiatax is giving me that outline puzzle piece effect when done stacking. Its not the broken glass effect. But an outline of jagged pieces but transparent so you can still see the moon under it. Not sure what is causing this. Its hit or miss on other stacks.
