Framing The Image

Despite the pointing accuracy of the Paramount it may be that the picture of the subject would look better if it was positioned slightly differently. In Maxim DL I go back into focus mode and set the binning to its maximum (4x4 in the case of the H36 camera I use) and I change to the Ha filter (for this guide), I set the exposure time to 10 seconds and then run continuous exposures and switch the cross hairs on (makes it easier to check a reference point for future sessions on the same subject) see below

 

As each image is downloaded I make any necessary adjustments using the Paramounts joystick until the image is where I want it
