It was gorgeous until about midnight.  I took over 200 shots of M-51.  At 30 seconds a piece.  I took 13 darks while I checked on my light shots.  I started the stacking process about 12:30 and left the computer on while driving home.  It’s on 170 of 207 as I type.

Lots of great detail Sterling! I took about 1.5 hrs of it at home Friday, but still have too much to learn on processing

Bob,

Get the free download of ImagesPlus and watch a few YouTube videos on it.  You’ll be an expert in no time.

Thanks Sterling. I’ll give it a try. Does it also stack, or do you still need to use Deep Sky Stacker before ImagePlus?

I enjoyed seeing your work and reading up on the Whirlpool to understand a little bit about your subject.

It stacks and aligns real simply.  You simply have a box for lights and another for darks, and others for flats and bias frames.  Basically drop them all in and hit go.  Check out some of the introductory videos on YouTube.
