Having trouble getting going? Want a walk-through on things like getting focus, capturing, processing, guiding, etc.? You've come to the right place. Here are several PDFs showing basic processing in Nebulosity and several video tutorials and walk-throughs. Here also are several articles and talks that may be of use. Note, for the PDFs, you'll need Adobe's Acrobat Reader (free) and for the videos you'll need Apple's Quicktime Player (free). In addition, you should have a look at the entries in the "Ask Craig" section of the Astrophoto Blog as some good bits are covered there.
