Hi Steve,

Great, the continuum did look as though it had been corrected. As I understand it to get best quality results using a reference star at similar altitude to the target is the important thing, within reason. I think I’m getting better at these corrections, but I still need more practice. I have been experimenting by taking spectra of 2 standard stars and comparing the correction curves.

Really nice results you got that night. It is fantastic when everything comes together.
