Basic Stacking – Orion

Backyard Astrophotography

An introduction to stacking: basic techniques to reduce noise and enhance details. For this episode, we'll look at an 84-shot stack of Orion taken from my back yard in Hawaii. We use Darktable for pre-stacking preparation, then use lxnstack for alignment and stacking, and it's back to Darktable to finish up after the stack.

This video is the fourth in our faster-edit format. It builds on knowledge from previous videos, running full-tilt through tools and methods to achieve the edit.
