My first attempt

Post by sourton »

This is my first attempt at using the webcam. It looks a bit over processed but it was my first time using registax and didn't really know what I was doing. I was pleased with it though.

Nothing wrong with that at all. It's a very good first attempt. Nice and sharp, if just a tad grainy. That may be something to do with the number of frames you stacked or perhaps you just overdid the wavelets slightly. Well done. Many would be pleased with that. 8)

Nice first image! 8) Sharp, can see plenty of Tycho rays and Clavius looks great. Well done.

Only comment is it looks a little dark on my monitor - try a histogram stretch on it?
