Autostakkert Tutorial

Download a free software called Autostakkert which uses a video clip of the Moon or planets to create a much more detailed final photo by stacking the very best frames of the video into a final stacked image. This technique also known as 'Lucky Imaging' provides a much sharper and noise free image than getting a single point and shoot photo of the object.
Tip: Some DSLR cameras record video in a format not recognised by Autostakkert. In this case simply convert your video to a recognisable format using a free downloadable software called PIPP.
