  1. Rotating the camera has no effect on the dark library. Dark frames capture random electronic thermal noise, so no need to take new ones after the camera is rotated, but they should be refreshed every 6 months or so. Flat frames ideally should be taken after every session, along with the accompanying dark flats, but unless you rotate the camera, they should be OK to use on several imaging sessions. Your calibrated lights will usually let you know if you need to take fresh flats.
  2. You know what they say about Manchester. If you can't see the Pennines it's raining, if you can see the Pennines, rain is due. 😁
  3. Love the colour in the image, and the detail in the dark dust lanes.
  4. Very nice image, some great detail in the nebula. I'm just a little confused about the filter data. Should the 42 x OIII be 42 x SII?
  5. Thanks Peter. I captured a few hours on each RGB filter, but with the moon being out, it's looks a bit washed out.
  6. Me too. Just got 3 hours of red data. Not sure how it will turn out with the moon so high, but it's better than nothing. 😀
  7. This is 4 hours of Ha data on M101 processed in Pixinsight. I have a clear night forecast tonight, so hopefully can gather some RGB data on this, and NGC 2403.
  8. Thanks for the info. It makes things much clearer. I use ASTAP already with SGP, and find it far superior to Platesolve 2.
  9. Basically, I need to start the INDI Webmanager on my RPi, then use the Ekos profile wizard to fill in the connection details, so I can then control the mount from my PC through EKOS? This is all new to me, but I'm getting there. Tried both wired and wireless connections, both work great.
  10. Looks like I might get a late start tonight, around midnight the sky looks to be clear. Hopefully I will get in 4-5 hours of data.
  11. Had an interesting day today, installing Astroberry on my RPi. Flashing the drive was no problem. Connecting to the hotspot was no problem. The problems started after I connected to my home network, I kept getting an error message, can't find this address. After faffing about for an hour or so, I realised I was using the ip address for the hotspot, instead of the ip address the router had allocated to my RPi. 🤦‍♂️ Everything seems fine. The system is very quick to boot up, and access to Astroberry is lightning quick over my browser. Is there any advantage for using Kst
