Particularly hearing that StarTools now works on M1/ARM CPUs made my day!

Re: 1.8 closed alpha feedback

Thank you Stefan, The new deconvolution is much weaker for moon shots. Old Startool old.jpg New Startool new.jpg From the screenshot it appears you are using far to few iterations; try the dedicated Planetary/Lunar preset. I have updated the documentation now to reflect this; A preset for lunar, pla...

Re: 1.8 closed alpha feedback

Don't know if this is of any importance, but when attempting to select stars in the GSVdecon module, I try and click on the central pixel (example below) and while this sometimes produces a blue box centred on the subject star, sometimes it doesn't. In the example below it seems pretty obvious wher...

Re: 1.8 closed alpha feedback

On my M5, when using 1.7 I actually ran a bit of sharpening on it after 2 HDR's (one normal, one reveal core), with the dark/light slider at 100%/0%. In 1.8 I was not getting any effect here at all. Mask was fine and as intended (conservative). I opened 1.7 and ran through the same log to confirm. ...

Re: [WANTED] 1.8 alpha test subjects!

I think I sussed out why I was having trouble getting colours to pop originally and I think this was because I was using stars to colour balance , I’m assuming the Nb channel may effect colour balance Ivo , not balancing stars seems the effect seems to work better , would that make sense to you Ivo...

Re: [WANTED] 1.8 alpha test subjects!

Deconvolution is no longer as strong as it used to be when I apply it on the moon and sun. Even of I det the radius setting very high it still is weaker. /Stefan Hmmm... That doesn't sound right - decon should yield better results than 1.7 even for planetary, solar and lunar datasets. Would you be ...

Re: 1.8 closed alpha feedback

First "bug" I encountered was that during sampling of the PSF Stars Startools crashed several times. Many thanks Mario, I think I have a fix for this now. A new alpha is coming later this week. I am having some issues with SVDecon module on M5 data, in particular the variable star 5 Serpentis. Many...

Re: [WANTED] 1.8 alpha test subjects!

Ivo do you have the workflow for the m33 data your showing im assuming this is the sgl data cant seem to get the red to pop using the ha accent module like your showing . Indeed that's the SGL data. In the Compose module, start off with importing L, R, G and B as usual, and import the Ha as NB Acce...

Re: [WANTED] 1.8 alpha test subjects!

Hi Ivo, thank-you for the invite. I gave the alpha a spin and came across a number of issues and a crash at the end but for a while the SVDecon was a fun explore and brought out some amazing clarity on an M5 image I am working on. How do you want to receive feedback ? This thread ? A new thread spe...
