We’ve been under a spate of poor sky conditions, yet two days ago there were clear enough skies to take a few images. Even if they didn’t turn out near as pretty, I still learned a bit in the process!

Using the CPC 1100 and 30 second unguided exposures, I stacked these using “comet mode” in DeepSkyStacker. Apparently the first time I tried this I didn’t read the manual very well. This time around I found out how to “click the comet” for stacking even when the comet is not detected as a star More >
