What other stacking options are there other than DSS ? I’m still getting major banding using DSS on my current laptop and want to keep using it. For some weird reason I don’t see the banding useing my old laptop with DSS.

Re: Horizontal banding w/DSLR

Wow I used the horizontal banding removal action 20 times and still Bandung there. I’ll try dropping my ISO down to 800 from 1600 and see if that helps for next time. Maybe shorter subs ?

Re: Horizontal banding w/DSLR

Trying to figure out how to convert tiff to jpeg or something i can post here. It was a shot of M101 20 x 5m lights 15 x 5m darks and 15 bias. Also used heavy dither. Don't have pixinsight or the astronomy action tools for photoshop yet. :(

Horizontal banding w/DSLR

Has anyone had a horizontal banding issues using a DSLR ?

It's possibly that I'm only using a battery and not DC.

Any thoughts ?

Thanks
