Re: A quick DSS settings summary anywhere?

Ivo, I've already worked this out by following the steps you referred me to in Astro Blog Delta. I was outputting data in tiff format rather than fits. I thought startools would accept tiff but I guess there's some compression or something that it doesn't like. Some day we'll all look back and have ...

Are you all PhD's in image processing?

I'm wondering because I can't even seem to step off of the curb. I thought I would learn how to use StarTools by downloading a pre-made image set like this one: http://www.rawastrodata.com/dso.php?type=nebulae&id=m42 (I chose the 2013 set), stack it in Deep Sky Stacker then load it into StarTools an...

Re: Getting started, Images Plus problem

Ivo, here I go again… Installed StarTools on my MacBook Pro. It runs and fills the display correctly but is pixelated just like it was on the PC. Do you have a fix? It's a 13" retina display. Also, do you know how to get a StarTools icon into the launchpad? It was easy to make a desktop icon for the...

Re: Getting started, Images Plus problem

Ivo, This is a little off topic but I'm looking at new ways to do AP and I'm working my way backward starting with StarTools. I'm looking at Deep Sky Stacker because you have recommended it. So what about DSLR control (I have a IR modified Canon 5D Mark II), do you have any suggestion? Preferably so...

Re: Getting started, Images Plus problem

Ivo, I think I may have figured this out. Output file selections include: 16 bit tiff 8 bit tiff jpg bmp 16 bit fit lossless 16 bit fit (default) 32 bit float fit I didn't have any raw images to work with so I just shot one of the landscape. I did a rudimentary conversion in Images Plus using 16 bit...

Re: Getting started, Images Plus problem

Hello again Ivo, sorry to bother you again so soon. I hoped that another user might reply so as not to disturb you with amateur problems. One of the choices I can make during processing are: Image Set Process Type DSLR (I'm using a Canon DSLR) Bayer no WB Bayer at Capture WB Color at Capture WB (thi...

Getting started, Images Plus problem

Hello, Does anyone know how to load a combine.fit file from Images Plus into StarTools? I read a post from someone that had the same problem with a fit file from Nebulosity, worked around by converting to a tiff file. I tried that and it loaded. Thanks

Thank you so much for sticking with me to solve this. I've never worked with a software developer/author with such ded...
