I am still learning the software and my question is: How can this photo be improved with StarTools ?

You might want to check the colour balance I am seeing it a little green.
Possibly from reading a previous recent post you might want to watch that increasing saturation in the colour module does cause colour edging within your stars, are you using a camera with lens or refractor for your imaging?

Thank you for the post.
I am using a RASA and CCD camera, no filter

Nice image Richard. If you post your stacked tiff or fit, I would be happy to process it and see what I come up with. I'll then post the log file.

Cheers Richard

Hi Richard,

I was unable to post the Fts stack using the forum.

Hi Richard,
The link is:


This file is linear.
I saw one of your photo of the Cave nebula in the forum. May I ask what equipment you use ? Amazing photo!
Thank you for your help!

Thanks re: Cave Nebula but that wasn't my data but Eric Cole's. ( I hope I made that clear in the post). It was an image processing challenge from the Astroimaging Channel. My hardware setup is so poor I tend to leach off other's data!:)

If you are stacking using DSS you should use the autosaved fits file.
