Re: presentation questions

I added a "Brightness Tranches" setting in AutoDev to the latest beta. You can now choose which precision is most suitable for your dataset. It specifies the granularity with which tranches (e.g. brightness continuums) are isolated for curve construction. As a general rule of thumb, start off by mat...

Re: a number os isues

Thanks Ivo, I am using Ubuntu LXDE and Mint Cinnamon on Linux. So this does not happen with you? For me every time. Never with version 8. Thanks again. Richard I'm using Mint MATE here. Are you running the latest 1.9 beta? There was a bug some versions ago that indeed caused a crash in the Synth mo...

Re: a number os isues

Hi Richard, Thank you for your report. 1. In version 8 and 9 (maybe 7 too), in the sharpening module, the "before" is grayed out when using the default 300%. 299 or 301 enables it. I can indeed replicate this if no new mask is generated. This indeed needs fixing. 2. In version 9, clicking on the sta...

Re: Processes or tools for removing moon glare?

Moon glare is really Wipe's domain. Of course, stray moon light will greatly add to the noise and make it harder to collect data on faint objects. However, not all of us can image under pristine skies - we have to get what we can to get. If you find yourself in this situation often, narrowband filte...

Looking for French speaking users

Hi all, With the exceptional help of decay and hixx , multi-language support is coming along quite nicely, making StarTools more accessible for non-English users. :thumbsup: We now have a rudimentary French translation, but we could really use the eyes and brains of some true native French speakers ...

Re: Donut stars

I'm definitely not proposing we should be doing 16-bit stacking, however the assumption is that the source material is *multiple subs* of 10, 12, 14 or 16-bit quantized data, where values fell within the range of 0 to /1024, 4096, 16384 or 65536. Stacking multiple subs will - in essence - add 2^(sta...

Re: Donut stars

The plateauing can be caused by a number of things and would - as already mentioned - be chiefly caused by an area that shows comparatively very little change in co-located pixels (as a proxy for "detail"). It would therefore receive a smaller dynamic range allocation. I've seen this happen as a res...
