Re: A bit of guidance please

Thanks Chris, you have given me a lot to think about, both with gathering data and then processing it. I did push the grain size up to produce a smoother looking background and didn't use a star mask so that maybe part of the problem. I must admit that I struggle a bit with StarTools. I haven't real...

A bit of guidance please

I'm not very happy with this image and am wondering whether it is because of the original data quality or my lack of experience with StarTools. The image was taken with a Canon 7D at prime focus on a Celestron 8" EdgeHD with the 0.7 focal reducer. Its a DSS stack of 30x120 sec lights, 30 x 120 sec d...

Hi, I did several modules then switched tracking off and went into denoise. I played around with some of the settings and then clicked "full" to see what it would do. I followed that with "Back" and the program crashed. I tried to upload the log file but it seems that's not allowed so here is the da...

1.3 and 1.4 on PC at same time?

The StarTools executables don't appear to have version numbers, so is it possible to have 1.3 and 1.4 on a PC at the same time. I don't mean running them at the same time, just have them there so that I can try the alpha out without having to remove the stable version.
Thanks
