Exposure length and star saturation
Hi Dan & Greg M.,

Check out the bottom right section of the Exposure Calculator. It provides estimates of the faintest stars detectable in the image as well as the stellar magnitudes that cause blooming and clipping of brighter stars. These values depend on the accuracy of the parameters of your camera (QE, full well capacity, anti-blooming, etc). As you change the sub-exposure length, these values will be updated. As Greg C. mentioned, the 'Camera View' will mark over exposed stars with a vertical red bar as well. Shorter sub-exposures is the main way to control star over exposure, if that's important for your image.
