Re: Amp glow with Canon 1000D and virtual mirror

I use "amp glow" option in wipe module selecting the area with lasso and creating a mask first. I try with the default values in the first attempt with bad results, and if I try to reduce agressiveness the process goes for a very very long time....

Amp glow with Canon 1000D and virtual mirror

Hi all! Recently i had a big trouble with my images after removing the ir filter in my Canon 1000D. A few test after I found the problem with the virtual Mirror use: AntiVibration pause – This is a parameter which is used within exposures plan or bulb exposures.

Re: Tips with colour callibration with Canon modified

Thanks. I use with my refractor the UV/IR cut Baader filter to obtain focus. The images are in RAW format when I stack it in DSS and i can calibrate fine the colour in PixInsight LE (it gets a natural colour) but I cannot get the same result in Startools now. :think:

Tips with colour callibration with Canon modified

Hi all. I recently had modified my Canon 1000D removing the IR filter. Now the images have more detail but I have problems with colour module because the reds are stronger in the image and I had change the parameters in the module to reduce red channel saturation but I don't got the desired results....

Re: recent narrow and wide field objects

Great pictures and a stunning proccesing. I have a question about processing of images on Startools with mono CDD and RGB filters or narrowband filters. I suppose you need all the channels (RGB) must be aligned when you open the files in Startools because there is no option in ST to align channels. ...

Re: DSS outputs 32 bit TIF that STARTOOLS cannot open!

Hi. Why don't you save it from DSS to .fits format? Fts format works fine in Startools.

Re: Wipe and very faint backgroud gradients

Ok, I think it was clear now for me, thanks Ivo.

P.D: I want use "weight" as "force" or "aggresivity" in my sentence, excuse me, I have problems with the translation :doh:

Re: M6, and question about star's core

I used DSS: 10 lights 600" + 1 light 300", 10 flats, 30 offsets, 20 darks
Auto adaptative weighted average
No backgroud callibration

I will restack again and compare the autosave file with the result. Always use .fts format.

Thanks a lot.
