Sky Watcher Equinox Pro 100mm OTA
- HEQ5 Pro mount
- ZWO ASI 174MM camera
- Best 274 frames of 808 frames taken over 17 secs (FireCapture).
Got dark frame to work on FireCapture but not flats so Newtonian rings (altering dark and white bands) still present – also some dust bunnies!
My picture turned out as below….ImPPG allowed me to move the black point to the lowest brightness pixel present – sprad out data BUT also left the impression that there are black flames on the sun’s surface(!) – or, as my daughter Hannah suggested, makes it look like the sun has blackheads (acne vugaris).
I have therefore inverted the image in Photoshop CS6 below. Which image do you prefer?
