Problem with calibration frames
Thank you both for your feedback. Yes, I always use dithering, and that on every shot. I think the steps I use are 5 pixels.
I probably had high expectations because of the many exposures. I simply worked several times with some tools and removed the smoking as good as possible. Also I had more expectation concerning the lifting of the dark clouds to the background. I think I'll let that be, and close NGC7023 for me for the first one. I would like to plan more precious exposure time for other subjects for the time being. I think for the beginning it is already ok.
But it would be cool if there were more possibilities in APP in the future to optimize the noise already during stacking. 😉
