Need Basic help in ENGLISH not scientific talk

I am pleased that I finally have the camera NEXIMAGE5 connected to the scope PST, and laptop.

I am not daft it takes experience and patience to get images of the Sun, so I am now asking the pros here....

What next.

Using icap software (happy to use anything better IF it is easy to install)

Images are of course garbage but it works

Thanks

I don't have any experience with the PST, but forum member "smerral" posts some excellent solar image here. Alternatively, as an SPA member you could make use of the expertise available from the Solar observing Group:

Hi there I am by no means an expert but on the images you have posted I think there are what is called ‘Newton’s rings’ these, I believe, are gotten rid of by creating a master flat, you do this by taking a pic of the surface, keep all settings and then drastically defocus, you need to take a few less frames for this, this should give you three avi’s (surface, prominences and flat) or whichever extension you chose. I, and I believe many others have (all free to download and use) Autostakkert, imPPG and GIMP, a lot of folk prefer Photoshop, but that is quite expensive.
I am not a pc expert, pretty useless really. There are videos on YouTube and one I often refer to is by Martin Wise otherwise known as Wise Imaging. The video lasts for just over 51minutes but answers most if not all questions. There is also article by Alexandra Hart named ‘how to image the sun’ this can be found at ‘solarnutcase’ well worth a read. Alex is possibly the Worlds best Solar imager.

Just one last thing. If you are interested in Solar Imaging May I suggest you sign in to Solarchat, where there are many different discussions regarding the Sun.

To quote Skyhawk "Need Basic help in ENGLISH not scientific talk"
I guess imaging is a pretty technical subject! I do not understand most of the technical "lingo" myself Skyhawk. Still that's computers for you. regards maf
