IMG_4017.jpeg . Here is my 1st pic of Pleiades and am wondering what i can do to make it better? Should i take several more frames then stack or make several copy’s and stack or do i leave it alone? Never used stacking software so I didn’t know if the angle change would mess up the stack with 8-10 continuous shots or not. Just point me in the right direction please!  Was taken with a 150 mm celestron explorer table top dob and a 25 mm celestron x-cel eyepiece

Okay turn your ISO way down and exposure time way up. Try getting a decent shot with maybe a 3 second exposure. That's where you get your brightness from

Only one way to find out!

If you get trails at 3 go to 2.5.
Trial and error can tell you a lot.
