Description

Trying to learn image processing, I finally stacked 12 shots by very complicated and probably wrong way (12 shots (600 sec. each) stacked in DSS with 3 darks (no flats yet) - FITS file opened in SIPS and saved as GIF file (with tremendous loss of the quality) - GIF file is transformed into JPEG file for editing (with another loss). I have to find a proper way, may be MAXiM, may be PixInsight???
But despite all the problems and odds, I admire ZWO ASI 1600: that's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind :)
