My first attempt with a 2xbarlow. Took a 30 sec video, aligning had to be a bit more precise. Again stacked in Registax 4 and then contrast and brightness and hue and saturation was fiddled with in Gimp 2.2. Labeled using the Virtual Moon Atlas. I'm very pleased with the result as it really didn't seem to be a good video, the Moon jumping about all over the screen. But once in Registax, went through each frame and manually aligned with the best frame, I was left with a decent image. Slowly learning what all the different functions in Registax do and with playing around found that manual aligning gives better results.

Hi Karah,

Much better than my first attempt.

I have all the flash gear and an observatory, but like you, I have not much idea of what I am doing yet. It's a steep learning curve isnt it?

Hi Karah,

Well done mate, much better than my first attempt.

I have all the flash gear and an Observatory, but like you, I have not much idea of what I am doing either. it's a steep learning curve isn't it?

Keep at it and always look for ways to develop your site!

Thanks Barry. Believe me when i say there are loads of avi's that are total crap. Take at least 30 each time and can only ever use about 5 of them. Well we can learn from each other Barry.
