Instruments required

Postby gielweysters » Tue Aug 14, 2018 11:36 am

I am a member of iTelescope. Images are sent in .fits extension and are pre-calibrated.
For image processing I use CCDStack2 plus StarTools-Windows64.exe.
My equipment is:
* Computer ASUS F751L Laptop with Wondows10Home.
Processor Intel® Core i7-4510U CPU@ 2.00GHz 2.60 GHz
Memory: RAM 6.00GB
Graphic Cart: HD Graphics 4400, 20@200-1100(Boost) MHz 64/128bit
* Monitor (external) is:
Eizo ColorEdge CS2420
24", with calibrater Eizo EX3
DisplayPort HDMI (DVI-D not available on laptop)
Uptill now I'm not satisfied with results. Not by far comparable to images showed on iTelescope site of same objects shot with same instrumentation, filters,timing etc.
My question is: Is my equipment/software of sufficient quality?

Hi Guillaume,

Would you be able to share/upload the data to a public or private location?
Without seeing the data (or at least your results) it's hard to say what the problem might be.

Thank you,

Hello Ivo,
I have a jpg image as an example.
I tried to upload it as an attachment, but to no avail! How to proceed?

Hi Guillaume,

A service like Dropbox, Google Drive or One Drive is usually how photographers share stacks and large files.

You should be able to attach a JPEG of reasonable size to any forum post though.
