I hope I'm posting in the correct area (very new to all this)
Last night I had a taste of this exciting video astronomy hobby (just a taste). I'd like to think that my frustrations aren't that unusual, although sitting here this morning I'm wondering if I'm just not intuitive enough to master (or at least manage) all the intricacies involved with Sharpcap. I only hope that I continue to find good--and patient--people to point me in the right direction. All that said, last night I was able to image the moon without much of a problem. Prior to moon-rise, I tried to image the Andromeda galaxy (this is the second attempt, with the same results as before). I'm posting the image I got and the settings in the hope that I might get a few suggestions for bringing out more of the galaxy.
