Re: Best Stacking Program for StarTools?

I'm what you might call intermediate in knowledge when it comes to Astronomy. I work with OSCs and really only began using calibration frames last year. That said, I have used Siril since I began our hobby. Siril has added a great deal of features and functionality since I began using it, and I high...

Adding Ha data to an LRGB fileset

I use a Color OSC. I've been considering some of the added detail in images I've seen posted in various places online. I would like to practice following the instructions for adding Ha to an LRGB image, but as I don't yet have the equipment to capture Ha I've been looking for some downloadable datas...

Auto Dev ROI/Mask

I am not the most experienced member posting here, in fact this may be a totally stupid request. Consider this situation: I have an image of M31 it is really a good image as long as you don't mind the core of the galaxy being blown out. It would be useful to be able to mask that core section and NOT...

Re: IC 4628 Prawn Nebula

Very nice Startrek. If I ever get clear weather here, I might just try the same target, though I don't use filters.
Good job!

Regards,
Troy

Re: Looking for some help

Hello hixx, Yes, you've described my current issues precisely. I would love to set up, and program several sequences into N.I.N.A. and go to bed when I get tired. Unfortunately, I live in the country, and we have all sorts of critters which might damage my beloved FSQ-106 and the mount. Recently we'...

Re: Looking for some help

Thank you for your advice Jochen. You might have read my response to Martin, where I dropped and trashed a brand new iOptron head. I suffer from palsy and trying to put things together with threads, screws, etc. is almost impossible for me. Especially true after the sun has set. If I can mount the f...

Re: Looking for some help

Martin, thank you for taking the time to provide input to a guy who needs it. I've come to the conclusion that I need all the automation I can get while collecting that data. I have set up N.I.N.A. to help with that process. I have an iOptron CEM40G mount, and have gotten guiding working, along with...

Re: Looking for some help

Freddy, thank you for your response. I've used StarTools for years now. I didn't realize I could use the SuperStructure module more than one time. This is what happens when you are 73 and have suffered 2 strokes. Thank you! Troy, Superstructure - isolate but set the Brightness retention to local med...

Re: Looking for some help

Martin, is this more like what you envision? https://tgalebachmo.net/wp-content/uploads/2022/07/LinearLagoon-1-1024x954.jpg I honestly don't know if I've done any better, I will leave it to you to decide. I do note a difference between the requested .jpg file and the one I see on my screen, the conv...
