Try to sort out your stacking if you can. Its going to be a challenge to see much with 30 seconds but load the image in to Pixinsight, and then use the Histogram Transformation process. Have a look at this clip:

Hi

I took a load of images on this target but they would not stack in deep sky....or pixinsight.....so I was just working on the one image....can anybody give me any advice on how to bring out details about more...this image was a 30 second exposure,,.....,.

What error message was you getting in Pixinsight? Was you using the WBPP or manually using image integration?

 

I'm afraid with a 30s image, you won't bring out more detail, the signal isn't there.

I would be more worried with Pixinsight not stacking the images, never come across that before. You can have problems registering the images, but once registered, stacking is usually a formality.

I put it up to eight in star alignment and I started stacking but it failed because only three stars were found :-[

OK increase the ransac iterations and the descriptors as described in my previous message. Also, open the star detection tab, and increase the detection scales to 6 or 7.

I'm doing everything you said I pushed it down to six this time and I altered everything else I will let you know the outcome shortly

Rebel t3i., I am just learning about guiding and i want to know how to enter 1 min onto my camon Rebel t3i have you any idea.,...then when I do a longer exposure I might have better results

You have to go into bulb mode, and need to connect your dslr to your aquisition software on your laptop. APT is good software for dslr's. The other solution is to buy an intervalometer for your camera. Then you can set exposure lengths without connecting to a PC.

Your focus might be out. Are you using a Bahtinov mask to focus or just doing it by eye?

Guessing you are from North America as you state Canon Rebel T3i. They are known as Canon EOS 600D in the UK.

You could be right Terry. There should be a lot more background stars visible, even with a 30s exposure.

If you are out of focus like Terry thinks, your background stars will just be a blur, and won't register. What software are you using to capture your images?

No software to capture I just polar align and took 30 second exposure on my canon Rebel...and yes I don't no why I say Rebel because I'm from England lol

If you want to get longer exposures I would suggest using APT on your laptop and connect your DSLR to it via usb. APT will also help you focus your telescope, and slew to objects.

Hi

Did another image today on same target and I was definitely in focus I can send a picture...but it's still saying the same thing..only three stars found there needs to be six?

Are you calibrating and debayering your images before registering? A typical workflow for OSC data would be as follows.

 

ImageCalibration with Master Calibration frames

CosmeticCorrection

DeBayer (OSC/DSLR only)

SubframeSelector

StarAlignment

ImageIntegration

Thanks for that..I tried stacking in DSS and it stacked and found star's but the end image was rectangular shaped do you no how I can fix this?
