Zero, what program do you use to stack? Photomatix and PS Elements won't do it (that I can tell). Does CS5 or Lightroom do it?

LTZ470, what camera settings were you using with those lunar shots? Did you set your f-stop to match the f-stop of your scope? White balance? Exposure eV steps?
And what Palermus said about the stacking. I have some great shots if the Venus transit that I would love to stack.

I use a program called Nebulosity. There are others available such as Keith's Deep Sky Stacker and Images Plus.

Default Are you guys using the motor drive to track your subject?

I was just browsing this ancient thread and had a question. Hopefully some of you are still out there. Are most using a motor drive?
