Basic Maxim processing

Here is a guide to basic image stack / align and stretching of images using Maxim DL
I have not included anything to do with darks / flats / bias frames, this is best saved for a later lesson.

Please let me know
1) If it works
2) If there are any errors
3) If you feel I could improve this in any way.

Hope to see some of your images from using this soon in the gallery!

Dave

Looks good, opens fine. the combine align box is sitting on top of some words, as are all the images after that. i think they have all jumped down a space when you saved.
Really useful though.

Dave, many thanks for pulling this together - it was a great help. I'm sure it took you some considerable time to do. In addition to myself, I'm sure that others starting off with the basics of Maxim will also benefit a lot from this tutorial.

I've run through the tutorial a few times today using the 20 subs that you/I captured of M51 last Friday on my set-up; I get a reasonable end result, but still not up to the refinement & clarity that you did showing me quickly how you used Maxim - so I've still got some things to adjust and modify to replicate what you did. I'll send you an e-mail shortly with some screen captures of my attempts and queries in a moment.

Thanks again though for your help with all of this.
