Webcam Deep Sky Processing

This is the method I have found to be by far the best for processing those deep sky, long exposure AVI's. Again I'm using a complete step by step method and it's REALLY easy, you've already completed the hard part by capturing the AVI! Bear in mind also that this would probably benefit from a couple of simple things. I'm not going to get into dark frames etc as the aim here is to keep it as simple as possible, but still to attain satisfying results.

The simple things this particular one would benefit from though are :-

Better Tracking. I know my tracking wasn't particularly great on this night, however, bear in mind the following AVI was taken on probably my second night ever at trying LX deep sky!

Better Focus. The focus could have been a tad tighter.

More Frames. As you will see, there's actually not many frames to this when you compare it to say Jupiter AVI's of a thousand frames, having said that, it was a first, so patience was a bit thin.

So, to start with, here's the actual AVI before we start processing :-
