There may be a thread on point but I haven't found it. Most threads, YouTube videos, etc. seem to assume you have a DSLR and want to understand how to get a good light source. I don't have a DSLR and I have the Flip Flap light panel for my flats.
I have never captured calibration frames (just starting in astrophotography). I do understand what they are are and how many, etc. It is the process for actually taking and collecting these frames that I am looking for help.
I am hoping that the software I already have will work but it is not obvious. Or perhaps there is a simple, fool proof way of doing it (it being the capturing of calibration frames (flats, darks, dark blats and bias)). So here is what I have:
- Software (Windows 10 Pro)
- TheSkyX (with TPoint and camera add-ons)
- SharpCap Pro
- ASCOM Platform and related drivers
- Plan on using Voyager (not SGP or Nina)
- Alnitak Flip Flat ( light panel for taking flats)
- ZWO ASI 2600MM
- ZWO filter wheel (LRGB, SHO)
- Tak TOA 130
- SB Paramount MX+ mount
Any idea, pointers, links would be much appreciated!
