save module

Hi Ivo, I just installed and tested v.1.4.328. Everything went well until I tried to save the final image which appeared as a.fts file. StarTools said it could only save as.tif file. Okay. So when I clicked on "save as" in my destination folder in my Windows 10 machine, it only gave me the option of...

Re: Issue in v.1.4

Hi Ivo,
The scale extraction would begin normally, then on or about the 4th iteration, the program would enter a continuous loop with the progress bar never proceeding more than about a quarter of the way to completion. Again, no problem with v.1.3.

Issue in v.1.4

Hi Ivo and all, All of a sudden while processing a file, the program hung up in the Denoise Module as it was doing the 6 iterations of scale extraction. Complete surprise to me. This issue did not show up in v.1.3. (I am also wondering if it is a problem with my computer.) Thanks for all input. Mich...

Re: StarTools hangs up

Hi Ivo, When I open the distro folder, the resource file seems to be there although it is in some unreadable code. (True for both versions of StarTools.) I inserted the license file, but I think that was not the problem. The program still hangs and gives me the "not responding" message. Then I get t...

StarTools wont open file

Hello, After a successful stacking in DSS (image saved as .tif), StarTools will not open the file saying that it can not read it. This is the first time this has ever happened. The 1st one is of The Flame and Horsehead Nebulae; the second of The Rosette Nebula. The initial images from DSS look good....

HELP !! Windows 10

Now running Windows 10 Pro and can open StarTools and even load a .fts file. However, what previously worked in Windows 7, no longer works. StarTools remains unresponsive. Anyone else having this problem and what's the fix?
