Hi ZWO Users, I'm taking up astrophotography after 20 year break to raise a family here in UK.
I have Celestron CGE 1400HD Pro in observatory and the camera is ZWO ISA1600MC-cooled. My laptop is Windows Vista and SharpCap and FireCap came with the camera for Planetary capture.

What is best SW for Planetary stacking/processing ?

What is best SW for DSO capture then stacking/processing ?

My scope is F11. How many frames and at what exposure time should I start for :-
- PLANETARY
- DSO e.g. M51

for planetary imaging, you can use SharpCap or Firecapture
for Dso imaging, you can use SGP or Maxim-dl, nebulosity

more frames better for any target
