GSTAR-EX3 capture Silver Coin glalaxy NGC253 with 130mm scope
Above: NGC253 from a 130mm f/5 Newtonian from suburban backyard using with GSTAR-EX3 set to 30 second, unguided exposures and later stacked. Auto Dark Frame subtraction feature was used during exposures so no need to apply them later during the stacking process. The above images are rescaled down from the large original recorded 3040 x 2048 and 1520 x 1024 formats.  Image - Steve Massey
