Setting up tonight if it's clear in Sydney west. Trying to a long FL shot of it with the CN-212 and a ZWO-120MM. I did a widefield of the last one in 2014 but want to get up close this time.

Anyone had advice using sharpcap on this? I'm thinking saving SER 16bit files then make master frames from them then using the resulting frames in a small animation / timelapse.

Or am I better off just shooting a continuous video?
Also when using SER I noticed a 8bit or 16bit option. Defaults to 8bit. Worth going to 16bit? There is a significant difference in luminosity between the moon limb and Saturn so the more dynamic range the better?
