Minimizing noise using CS5 or DPP

Hi folks.

I've had a look at Fred Basset's fine time lapse sequences,and like to have try at something like that one night.Using a Canon 10-22 mm lens on 50D.I have a small EQ mount that does not get used for anything else.

The main problem I can see going to noise.The 50D will give much more than Fred's 5D2. What is best way to lower noise in PP? I use CS5 and DPP.

But never had much skill in removing noise.What are the best settings to using? I always seem to end up with more noise when I run any image through PP.So end up never using it.Any advice on where to put the settings too before using the slider,would be very well received.

Thanks Chris

You don't need noise reduction for timelapses; the images are reduced to web resolution, typically, and the noise is essentially squashed. If you don't have anything faster than about f/2, forget it, basically.

The default settings in DPP should suffice.

Phil, Alex or Fred, the pros, will likely have conflicting, or more informative views.
