Well after all the talk going on I finally pulled out the ancient scope mount from the shed and bolted a camera to it
Did a rough polar align, did not bother with doing a drift align for such a short focal length. Anyway here are a couple of quick results
Both are single images, with dark and bias frames manually applied in PS, and annotated by http://astrometry.net/
First image: is Polaris since scope was pointing at it anyway during alignment.
Second image: is delta Cassiopeiae (ruchbah) / m-103
About the only 2 targets easily visible from my backyard at the time.
Will have to haul it out again as winter comes and more things show up overhead.
Great thing is with qdslrdashboard app on windows and a 15 foot usb cable I can control the camera from indoors
Third image: ere is the camera attached to the old skywatcher EQ5 scope mount
Forth and fifth images: are samples of what the original files looked like
Sixth image: and finally what DSS did with it, rather disappointing.
I like my single images better and it seems to have turned the stars green.
Suspect I am doing something wrong.
