OK, so I’ve got the rig out in the backyard shooting with the stock remote capture software. Ran off 20 shots of the Pleiades at 105mm, and working on 20 widefield frames of Orion at somewhat less. Shooting at f4, wanted to test the L-series wide-open. I do see some coma, but I’m able to shoot 8X faster than I was with my *shudder* Rebel (the OLD one…. 300D). So I’m running off 30 second exposures at ISO 6400, equivalent to 4 minute subs on the rebel. I shot 5 darks, hope that’s enough. Haven’t had time to shoot lights, I’ll do that at some point.
Next I get to stay up and try to stack these in Cinepaint and see what processing I can manage. Will post results, if anyone’s interested.
ok, I can’t seem to add attachments… anyone wanna clue me in? Firefox 3 in Ubuntu.
