build works now! but docker_compose up bonks...
I am setting
and I use an ASI533MC Pro (OSC)
that is an absurdly long to build almost anything! thanks for the heads up. I will hang in there.
LiveStack looks very promising and I would like to give it a try on my pi 4B+.
I installed docker (v20.10.1 build 831ebea) with curl and docker-compose (v1.27.4) with pip3.
I'm running into an issue during the docker-compose build
good news on flats! I received my new ASI533MC Pro, took some shots of the Flaming Star Nebula,
took flats, bias and darks. Flats were done with the LED panel on low dim sitting on top of 3 layers of t-shirt cloth
fitted into a small embroidery hoop with scope pointed vertically. I was able to match flats with same gain,
offset and temperature as the other series: flat exposure was 0.14 sec. No banding and so easy to do!
thank-you Magnus. I will give the dark flats a try.
I tried capturing flats in two ways but am not satisfied with the results:
1) point the scope vertically with several squares of white paper over the extended dewshield of my William Optics GT71
at an overhead LED rectangular panel in my laundry room. Run Ekos to automate the exposure time in the capture module.
When I do this, there is some kind of periodic interference pattern that shows up as horizontal banding and a very short exposure time.
2) similar to 1) but point the uncovered end of the dewshield flat against a laptop display of a white image and similar
banded results and short exposure time
3) I went back to scheme 1) and manually set the exposure time to 1 sec after trial and error. Attached is a sample as
seen in ASIFitsView
I use one of the Siril scripts to automate processing my OSC lights against bias, flats and darks. When I use these
flats, I see minor noise reduction improvement in my final processed lights.
I have a USB dimmable LED tracing pad from amazon coming today ( tinyurl.com/y36c6gev ) to try out. I plan
on using a small diameter embroidery hoop with white t-shirt fabric to diffuse the LED light.
9+ hrs integration of OSC November captures aligned and stacked with Siril, processed with
I am new to capturing flats, and struggling, so not included with this integration.
I would greatly appreciate C&C. Thank-you!
