Yep, I have dithering enabled for my APT/PHD2 setup. But due to my equipment
“issues” I had to fall back on unguided BackyardEOS to get any kind of data to
Hmm. How does dithering work with the dark frames? Seems like both … Nope. You
apply the dark frame subtraction to each individual dithered subframe. So the
dark frame will remove the “permanent” noise like hot pixels while dithering
will remove the transient noise like dust on the front lens.
But AASP was a successful learning experience for me!
Now if I can only leave well enough alone and stop twiddling the image in
PixInsight. :-) I had hoped to take the PixInsight workshop in Mesa last month
but the Monsoon prevented me from getting any data collected over the summer.
Guess It’s going to be a lot of trial and error with frequent use of Command-Z!

I know you couldn't do this for your setup the other night, but Dithering
should take care of those hot pixels, APT does support that functionality
