I have been using DeepSkyStacker Live during my imaging sessions lately and I find in most help to show you whatís going on, so you have a chance to correct it before the damage is done. So I have saved some screen shots of a simulated sessions using the actual images taken a couple of nights ago of Thors Helmet, with some comments.

I have slowly learnt a technique to use DeepSkyStacker Live during the actual imaging session that results in what you see below.   Save the images downloaded from the imaging camera to your nominated directory as normal.  View and only copy the possible images for later processing to a directory which DeepSkyStacker is monitoring.  This stops the images with obvious problems from upsetting the average in DeepSkyStacker.

 

Progressive Stacked Image

I need a lot more images to pull this one out of the noise and get a nice image.

 

Running Score on Each Image  

 

 

Full Width at Half Maximum  

 

 

This is a guide to ensure you are still in focus.

 You can see the 6 th, 8 th and 20th images have a problem.  Checking these images you can see something moved a little to blur the brighter stars in these images.

 Assuming focus is OK, I reckon itís a guide to how seeing changes thru out the night as well.

 


Number Of Stars  

 

 

X & Y Difference

 

Number of pixels the image has moved in the X and Y axis using the original image as the reference.

I reckoned I re centred the image at image number 18,19 21 !

This is real interesting, I can see the image from the DSLR camera on the LX200R drifting, I also reckon the angle of the drift changes with time, that is where the mount is pointing.  However the image in the guide camera on the ED80 is rock solid !!!  I know there are a few things that can cause this such a flexure between the two scopes.  I suspect this is the mirror flop on the LX200R causing the image to shift on the DSLR .  The angle changes as the mount moves around the horizon over the evening.

I have taken the time to lock the mirror, that is obtain rough focus with the focus knob, lock the mirror, then obtain fine focus using the micro focuser.  Not sure how to improve this apart from pulling scope apart and mechanically locking the mirror some how ?

The image does not rotate but simply drifts down the sensor.  The amount it drift does not effect the exposure on individual frames at the exposure lengths used (7 minutes) but looting between frames you can see the drift.  See the gif file attached to show this drift. 

 

 

Field Rotation Angle

 

You can see the image drift, not sure why we donít see the effects of me re centring the image at images 18, 19 and 21 ???

As Dave pointed out, this curve shows the field rotation of the image.  As the first image was taken at 21:03 and the last at 24:03, some 2 hours and 38 minutes later, the total field rotation for 2h 38m was <  0.44 degrees.  So the polar alignment was not too bad.

  

 

Sky Background

 

Now this is good for two reasons. You can see the sky get darker as we go thru zenith and the sky darkening after sun set and lightening before sun rise.  I also saw the effects on the sky background just  before the moon rose ahead of the sun.

On other sessions,  I had some strong highway lights that effected this curve as I pointed the scope in their general area.  Seeing this curve I was able to build a shield to stop the highway light and I could see the immediate improvement.

 How to use  DeepSkyStacker Live?

Step 1

Check the Settings tabs for all the stacking and warning settings

 Step 2

Click on the Monitor button to start monitoring the folder

When the monitoring is on incoming images are only registered but not stacked.

 Step 3

To start stacking the images click on the Stack button

At this point all the incoming (and previously registered) images will be stacked.

You can pause/start again the stacking process by clicking on the Stack button.

To stop the monitoring and stacking click on the Stop button.
