I upgraded my configuration again last weeks and moved everything over to Sequence Generator Pro. Already collected quite some data with it but no time for processing everything yet :-).

Here is NGC 2403 in Luminance only quickly done with AstroPixelProcessor and cleaned up with Photoshop.

Working with SGP is a joy, got everything running correctly including auto focusing which is fully active from now on. This will bring much more healthy nights back into my life :P. And hopefully increase the quality from my images...

I do have some banding up and down because of the very high dithering I am doing, sometimes the objects gets out of the middle quite far after many hours of exposures... Need to start using flats and/or tune my dithering...

Hopefully I can collect the RGB and Ha data anytime soon to complete this work.
