    Absolutely, it is widely used to increase signal to noise ratios in digital photos. I have never used it in daytime photos but the principal is the same.

    There are MANY softwares (free and fee) out there. RotnStack, Registax, Photochop will do it to.

    I use a software called MaximDL, it's pricey, but there is a free 30 day demo if you want to try it.

    Ishtim!!! :hug: Marvelous shot!

    I'd just finished a sci-fi book, so the pic is extra meaningful to me right now. "To the Horsehead Nebula and back!!"

    This is absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for sharing it!

    I had a question I wanted to ask but can't seem to find any option for private messaging. Sorry I'm new here so if it doesn't exist, pardon my ignorance!

    Hi and welcome to TechARP forums! :wave:

    Perhaps you may have disabled them in your profile. The drop down described above by Adrian is not there. :think:

    You are right :shifty: There's no dropdown menu.

    Alternative method is to click on the username and get directed to "view profile" Under contact info, there's a send private message.

    I think it's because we disabled PM for new users, to avoid spams.
