In the following video we process a modest data set of M8, which was graciously donated to the public domain by Kurt M. (OttoMann at a AstronomyForum.net).
This dataset is a good representative of what beginning enthusiasts, or enthusiasts with sparse equipment would produce.
We tackle the many challenges typical of this sort of data; stacking artifacts, vingetting, light pollution and heavy noise. We show how to recover correct color and how to make the most of the data available.
We conclude with demonstrating StarTools' 'Repair' feature, restoring stars to a round appearance using original pixels and readings.
