i finally got off my butt and completed the master calibration frames completed in Pixinsight today for my QSI683 & SVA. I’m anxious to see what the SVA130 can do. I’ve got 4 completed targets ready to process. East and West Veil, Soul and Wizard. Hopefully they will meet my demands otherwise it’s back to my trusty RC or ED127.
Boy I tell you that it’s a pain in the butt to do a dark library for a new camera. I shoot 20 minute images so that means I need 30 darks for it. That takes most of a weekend. And then since I use 3 different scopes it means I need 30 flats for each filter and for each camera/scope configuration. It’s hard to keep up with.
Hey what are you doing for image storage? I’m backing up to a big hard drive I bought and then mirroring it to a second hard drive I have. I’m thinking about a raid array with stacked drives. After two years I have every sub and processed images in possession and the size of it is huge.
