Description

DSS was not able to stack these pictures. I dont know why, it has recognized about 10 stars per frame. I then only calibrated with DSS, stacked the calibrated ones with SIRIL (183 out of 285 images) and then post-processed with PI. The resulting image is better than i expected after all these problems, but i believe it could have been better. PI is really a beast of a software, one need to learn how to tame it...
