DSO has sucked me in big time. In the period of just a few months I have justified hours of learning new software, bought a new camera, ordered a new mount and another 'scope. I'm hooked and I don't think I want to find a cure.

Mike,

 

There are two possible solutions and one definite.  Definite = death,  possible #1  bankruptcy.  Someone else want to say another possible reason??

 

I hope the definite one is a long way away.

Well... hang in there and enjoy the deep-dive. Just remember to come up for air when ~rapture of the deep~ kicks in. Beware the bends.    Tom

 

Nitrogen narcosis, also known as depth intoxication or rapture of the deep, is a change in consciousness and neuromuscular function caused by breathing compressed inert gas.

 

DCS, also known as the bends, describes a variety of injuries that result from inadequate decompression following exposure to increased pressure. This can occur following uneventful dives within accepted no-decompression limits but is more likely after dives that involve a rapid underwater ascent.

You also might want to investigate downloading the now free "ImagesPlus" from (its author) Mike Unsold's web site. It's a full function GUI interface astro image processing program that does both pre and post processing. Mike also has documentation pages on his site that show how to use many of the program's features. It's not quite Pixinsight (PI) but it also has a much easier learning curve. I started using (and still use) this program many years ago when it it was a purchase to use program and paid for many upgrades to it. Mike finally stopped developing the program and made it a free download when he was unable to obtain pre-release developer software for the DSLR camera manufacturer's new storage formats. When you feed the program DSLR raw files, it converts them to FITS then processes them.
