    1. get camera pointed and focussed
    2. take 25 shots
    3. throw away 15 of them because stupid lens keeps slipping out of focus
    4. Stack the rest in Deep Sky Stacker
    5. Adjust for colours and brightness in Photoshop

    What is steep sky stacker?!

  7. Astronomr 65 months ago | reply

    It's a prgram that allows you to stack up multiple exposure of things, averaging and pulling out details :)
