I wanted to thank everyone who posted to this thread. I am new to all of this and recently (2 days ago) bought a copy of StarTools. I've been trying off and on to improve my pictures. Mostly, I've wanted to remove the orange cast I get when imaging with my Atik Infinity camera. I don't get the greatest images and thought I'd just have to live with what I could get. I've tried all kinds of packages, procedures, settings, etc. I had some issues with AutoDev in StarTools and ended up with super-noisy results and despaired--thinking my images were just too horrible to do anything with them.

But this thread has really helped me a LOT. I am still not getting the colors I want to see in things like spiral galaxies, but at least I'm now making progress and feel more hopeful. (Of course it would help if I could get up the nerve to collimate my scope and got better at focusing, but...)

So, to all the folks who added step-by-step instructions with the parameters they used: thank you!

(I've been watching all the YouTube videos, as well, and taking notes, so between those and this forum, I'm getting a lot of tips and help.)
