The color rendition in the images was terrible. I set it for 2x resampling and let AIP4Win stack the image series. To view this digimag, Adobe Flash player is required.

I set it for 2x resampling and let AIP4Win stack maede image series. This data is also recorded against dark frames whenever they are generated.
Meade Deep Sky Imager Fan – for all Meade DSI models
However, for monochrome imaging the DSI-Pro does well enough to be fun to mess around with. Then I lock the focus, close down Magnifier, increase the exposure to 2 seconds, move to my target, and center it. This proved to be true: This improves image resolution, increases the image dimensions and acts as a field de-rotator, as long as your telescope is controlled by AutoStar. The field of view was microscopic. meadw
Focusing is easy because my Newtonian’s diffraction spikes split into two parallel lines when the image is slightly out of focus. Although this works well and the DSI exhibits fairly low heat-induced noise, it still produces noisy raw pre-processed images.
Although their initial attempts to enter the amateur CCD market were flops, it was unlikely that this aggressive company would sit by while others cashed in on anything to do with astronomy.

Testing showed that Meade’s dark-subtraction did a pretty good job, and if I set it so that the capture program would save every image in the FITS format, I could stack the images using AIP4Win to get what I consider better results than Meade’s software delivers. You can opt-out at any time. AutoStar Suite has everything you need to plan, capture and process your images.
Adding filters will reduce the amount of light reaching the chip, so dark current and readout noise will inevitably lead to either considerably longer exposures or much noisier images, which seems to me like a lose-lose situation. By clicking on the ‘Sign Up! In summer, Meade’s software does a good job dark-subtracting second exposures and less well with second exposures.
Altair Hypercam M V2 mono astronomy imaging camera.
Bresser full HD deep-sky camera. The aluminum housing is crudely cast and minimally machined. I can honestly say that it was a bear to install and a pain in the butt to operate.
SkyCapture Software Download
When I got my observatory fully operational early in summerI shot the four images that follow. Jim tried it first. He sent it to me.
The software was buggy and froze esi. The Ring Nebula picture was taken in the fall of from my half-completed observatory. You can download it here. The color rendition in the images was terrible. In winter, when it’s cooler, the longer exposures might be superior.
The sensitivity of the camera was terrible. Return to Richard Berry’s Home Page. In my experiments, the Meade software wasted a lot of usable exposures. I use Meade’s Envision software to capture the image sequences.
Envisage is a clever program geared towards getting you the best image possible.
