This week’s video covers the topic of image stacking, including how to use it in order to take high-quality astrophotographs without any special camera equipment.
If you’ve ever wanted to photograph the Andromeda Galaxy, Orion Nebula, Pleiades, or any other deep-sky subject – but you don’t have an expensive astro tracking head – this is the technique you should use. (Of course, you can also combine image stacking with an astro tracker, and it gets you even better image quality; this is a very versatile technique.)
Even if you don’t want to do deep-sky astrophotography, but simply regular wide-angle Milky Way shots with a foreground, you’ll also find image stacking to be quite valuable.
