Saturn photo from Stephen, a first-time user who used his NexImage 5 with a Sky-Watcher SynScan Collapsible Dob 12" and reports this:
I just wanted to share with you my first image with the Celestron Imager
and my new telescope.
The picture looks much better that what I see with my eye. I just see
color differences (lighter and darker areas).
I hooked up the electronic eyepiece to the telescope and laptop, and took
a 4 minute video of Saturn (during which Saturn danced all over the
screen, out of focus, in focus, off the screen, tracked nicely, etc). I
then used the Registax software to automatically split the video into the
6000+ image frames, align the Saturn images, and I asked it to pick the
best 200 images. It then stacked these images, and optimized the picture.
And this was the lowest quality setting.
Many thanks for your guidance!
