Recommended sub lengths
Imaging subjects with brighter cores will of course require shorter sub lengths for HDR, your personal experience will be needed to gauge this yourself.
Please remember this is only a guide above, we are just trying to help you have the best experience possible remote imaging with Roboscopes.
Roboscopes supply the site and control the equipment but you choose everything else from filters, object/co-ordinates to sub lengths. So you need to exercise due diligence and experience when booking because if you fill the booking form out with incorrect details then you will get precisely that.
It is not Roboscopes responsibility to check your detailed requirements after you have booked.

This pier has a FREE calibration library, this includes a dark library that correlates to the most common subs lengths used, see below
If you choose more individual sub lengths eg 550s, then darks are not included in the price and are taken for you on an individual basis. Please add darks to your imaging run in checkout.
