The screen you have should be OK providing it is evenly illuminated. You must leave your camera in the same orientation and focus point as when you took your Light Frame subs.

You will need to experiment a little to get the right exposure, you check that by activating the INFO button on the camera and checking that the Histogram is between 1/3rd and 1/2 the distance to the right, just take a few JPEG's till you get it right, then take your RAW's, if you have a Canon camera, just look in Digital Photo Professional.

Thanks John,
I have a Canon 450D.

I realize that I will need flats for the lights taken each night, but after I establish what the appropriate exposure is will that always be the correct exposure for the set up used?
