How to Get All Subframes to Stack, Regardless of Score?

I need some help, here. Does anyone know how to get all subframes regardless of their scores to stack in Deepskystacker? I have tried the "Register Above a Threshold" feature and set the threshold…Continue

I know how to do a flat(white sheet over the scope 15" at 800 during the afternoon) and dark flats into the lens cover (ie 15" at Iso 800 if that is what I am going to do) plus a bias (1/4000th into the lens cap) but what and how do you do a DARK?

John, I hear you on that slider, I did the same thing w/it, it's counterintuitive. Marc

Hi Mark,
The exposure info is 6 minutes @ ISO800. There are 15 subs. The camera is a Canon 50D Hutech modified. I'm using a 6nm HA clip-in filter from Astronomik. It looks like I error and moved the star detection threshhold the wrong way. Once I moved it to you setting of 10%, DSS found plenty of starts. I'm stacking right now.
Thank you so much for your suggestion and solving my dumb mistake.

John, how long is your exposure time? Cam.modified? I stack 9mn exps. w/a 12nmHa clip filter on a modded Can1000d. Star detection set at 10% and noise reduc unchecked. I do use dark calibration w/these. Marc

@John Eckert
I also stack 6 nm (Astrodon) lights without problems, can you send me a few dark corrected lights?

I use DSS for all of my stacking. Unfortunately, anything I try to stack exposures in 6nm Ha... DSS says it can't find any stars. I changed the star threshhold and moved the slider all the way to the left, but no joy.

hey i had dss for a year with no luck when i turned the drizzle off it worked like a charm i guess my computer could not keep up with it or some thing so if anyone out there is haveing a problem with it not completeing the job this might b the problem it would go just about to the final product and bam something about memory would pop up and it would stop hope this helps someone

I've only used dss once. Normally I use Neb 2 to do the stacking. So, I have no clue as to settings but would like to use this during imaging to stack live by having it monitor the Neb 2 folder. Not sure if I can do that. I've set Register and Stacking settings, but don't have a clue what they should be.
