HI everybody,
Can someone tell me how to do dark frames so I can get rid of my imager noise? Also, what are some other really good tips for the LPI? I finnaly got a servicable image of Jupiter and now I want even better.
Thanks

Actually for as short of the exposures are you shouldnt really need a dark frame.
But if you want to shoot them  cover the nose piece of the imager or cap the scope and select the dark frame option in Envisage.
Then hit start  .
when the dark frames are done dont forget to un cap the scope.

Thanks for your help!
However, I'm kind of confused (what else is new?) I still get some noise in my images from the LPI. Should that be happening at all or am I not using it correctly? I know dark frames can take that out. I was just wondering if theres anything more to it than what I thought.

It all depends on what kind of noise you are getting.
It could be from a loose connection,electrical noise, a bad cable.
Ive even see this happen when you run another application window over Envisage.

Ok, I'll look into all that. I know I'm still missing the conection cable that ties the program into the telescope (I guide manualy with the controller box right now)
Once I get all my equipment together we'll see what happens. You wouldnt happen to run an astro imaging boot camp by chance would you?
