They are jpegs from fits files so much better on screen. And they get really nice when you go out to 4-6min stacks (which is long for video astro).

Not like astrophotos - the stuff I see in that part of the forum is gob smackingly beautiful. But for me (only been doing astronomy for 8 months now) its great being out there late at night viewing it 'near live' and watching the image form with successive 5-10sec sub in a stack. LOL about about stacking for a nice image - I'm still really crap at setting up and aligning an EQ mount.

Actually they're better than some astro-images I've seen.

Must look very nice on screen.
